  • About:

    Ilfracombe and District Lions Club have been raising money for local good causes and people in need for over 40 years. Lions run the Swimarathon at the Ilfracombe Pool & Fitness Centre each February. At the 2018 Swimarathon 26 teams took part from 13 organisations and in total they swam more than a whopping 2,500 lengths and raised £4,142.

    Each team of six swims in lane for 55 minutes and raises money through sponsorship for the number of lengths completed. The Lions collect all the money from the event - half is then returned to the team and the other half is redistributed by the Lions to local good causes.
