With the horrible events that are occurring in Ukraine, CUSWPC have set about hosting charity events over this year to raise as much money as possible to help as best we can. For this event we have teamed up with OUSC.
Many swimmers and water polo players on the teams have been directly impacted by the recent events, and so this cause means a lot to us as a club and a family.
We will be hosting a 100 by 100 metre Front Crawl relay on the 14th of May in which members of current and past members CUSWPC and members of OUSC will take part and power their way down the pool. The event will take place between 2pm and 5pm at Parkside Pools, in which time the team will be attempting to also get into the records books. If you are a member of our Alumni, please come along to swim or support us in this event!
After the relay, we will be hosting a Charity dinner at Hughes Hall starting at approximately 6:30pm. Even if you don’t feel like hopping in the pool, feel free to come along to both events! Price is estimated at £35 non-drinking and £50 drinking (bottle of white or red wine).
In order to sign up for the relay and/or dinner please fill out this form by the 30th of April. We’d love to see as many of our Alumni there as possible!
All of us at CUSWPC and OUSC would appreciate any support you can give; no matter how small the donation, it will still be making a massive impact. You can also be involved by donating to our just giving page, watching the livestream, or coming to the charity dinner afterwards.
The money raised will be donated to a charity called Save the Children. Save the Children is a charity that focuses on the education and health of children across the UK and the world. In Ukraine, their focus is on distribution of food, clothes, and medicine, providing vital mental health support and education to children and families and assisting refugees arriving in Romania. With over 3.5 million children trapped in Ukraine, they are attempting a very difficult task and can use all the help available. To find out more, you can check out their website here.
