SWIMATHON 2021 CANCELLED
Due to the continued uncertainty regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, Taunton Soroptimists have had to make a difficult decision regarding the 2021 Soroptimist Swimathon. There will not be a Swimathon in 2021, but our next Swimathon will be held in February 2022. This has been a very hard decision to make and we know that, like us, many of our regular swimmers will be very sad about this as it is such a highlight of our Soroptimist year when so much money is raised for local charities, thanks to the efforts of all the swimmers, sponsors and organisers.
This will be the first time in 33 years that there has not been a Soroptimist Swimathon in Taunton.
This year’s Swimathon raised £16,528, making the total raised over the 32 years just over £677,000. This has been distributed among 78 local charities. We hope that the 2022 Soroptimist Swimathon will be an even bigger and better event than ever and we can raise more much-needed funds for our local nominated charities.
