The idea is to get as many people to sponsor your swim to raise as much money as possible.


This can be done in two ways.

  1. Paper Sponsorship Form    Using this method has drawbacks - Having to pass it round to get sponsors and even losing the form. Furthermore, it can be a problem collecting the donations. If you decide to use the paper format then this can be printed from this web site by going to the Sponsorship Form in the MORE section                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
  2. Online Sponsorship  This has proved to be a much more efficient way of encouraging donations so we are using Virgin Money Giving again this year which proved to be very successful last year. This method saves both you and us time and effort as any donation is paid direct into the Rotary Charity account and any Gift Aid is automaticlly calculated.                                                                                                                                                                 WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO USE THIS METHOD OF RAISING FUNDS                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Creating an Online Team Fundraising Page
