Challenge Event 2021

Channel Swim Relay Sponsor A Team Today

We have teams taking part in the challenge of a lifetime by swimming the channel to raise vital funds for the Children's Air Ambulance.

Get In Touch About Taking Part

All of our teams have taken to the water for 2021. If you’re keen to take part then get in touch with our Events Team.

Teams covered the 22 miles between Dover and Calais in teams of six and took it in turns to swim the channel in rotation. This challenge was a physical and mental challenge that can only be achieved with support, willpower and the right preparation. We’re offered all we could to help spur our swimmers on to complete a lifetime achievement and focus all their energy on preparing for this incredible feat.

Each swimmer had a fundraising target of £1,800

Congratulations to our 2021 Teams

Huge congratulations to all of the teams who completed the Channel Swim Relay event in 2021. It was an amazing team effort and everyone did their absolute best and we couldn’t be prouder of the incredible achievement.

How We Support Our Teams

We’re taking care of all the necessary arrangements, leaving swimmers to focus on training. Each swimmer receives a welcome pack that includes everything you need to get started including application forms, fundraising information and of course, training tips. There are resources that we recommend to help prepare for the big day.

Ongoing support, promotion and resource are what we’re able to provide to our swimmers to ensure they feel confident and ready to take it. We’re incredibly proud of everyone who has signed up so far and looking forward to seeing the dedication pay off.
