Lake Coniston End to End Swim

5.2m Chill Swim to improve African livelihoods

On the 2nd September 2017 Dan and Tom will be attempting to swim 5.2 miles along the entire length of Lake Coniston in the beautiful Lake District. We met in a snow hole in Scotland 2013, and have had so many great mountain adventures together in the winter, but never a summer outing! We have become addicted to wild swimming and after seeing this challenge had the word "chill" in the title, plus it is in our favourite Lake District playground, we were hooked!

Any money you kindly donate to us will go directly to improving the liveilhoods of African communities living in far more challenging conditions. As a trustee of African Outreach, Dan guarrantees that all funds will go directly to help rural and slum dwellers access training and employment opportunities on the ground in Africa. You can read more about our charity and projects on this site

Thank you for listening to this madness and for any contributions no matter how small.

Ps unlike Just Giving this site charges £0 admin fee so all direct to good causes!
