Ponteland Lions Swimarathon

LionLogo4cPonteland Lions will host its annual Swimarathon at Ponteland Leisure Centre. The event raises money for a number of different charitable organisations chosen by both the young participating swimmers and the Lions Club itself.
The Swimarathon consists of approximately 35 competing teams from local clubs, youth organisations and schools, giving many young swimmers an enjoyable day testing their swimming skills.
Each participating team will donate half their sponsorship money to their chosen charity, while the other half will donated by the Ponteland Lions to their nominated charities.
The event has taken place every autumn for over 20 years, raising tens of thousands of pounds over the past two decades, providing vital funding for local, regional, national and international charities.
