A team of Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Bury St Edmunds will be swimming for The Rural Coffee Caravan in their forthcoming Swimarathon on March 17th.  Can you help find sponsors? All the funds raised by the team will kindly be donated to The Rural Coffee Caravan to support the work of the charity.

If you are also interested in entering another team to swim for The Rural Coffee Caravan at the event, we would be delighted to hear from you! There is no charge for entry, teams of 4 swim relay for 40 minutes and all the sponsorship money raised goes to the charity of each team’s choice.

Swimarathon 2023’s swimmers and their supporters raised an amazing £10,750 for 20 different charities!
