Register for Swimathon in Hackney now

Hackney swimmers are being urged to take the plunge at London Fields Lido, Clissold Leisure Centre and Kings Hall Leisure Centre next Spring for the Sport Relief Swimathon.

From Friday March 21 to Sunday March 23, swimmers in over 600 pools across the UK will raise money for poverty stricken children around the world through Comic Relief.

For the last three years London Fields Lido has boasted the most registered swimmers and raised the most amount of money for charity out of every pool in the country.
