Can you take on our latest challenge?  

Every day 250 people are given the devastating news that they are losing their sight. Support us by taking part in our Swim 250 challenge to help make sure Beacon can be there when needed, so no-one faces sight loss alone.

Ready? Let’s Dive in…

Whether you’re a seasoned swimmer or just dipping your toes in the water, everyone’s welcome to take part in Beacon’s Swim 250 challenge during September. 

All you need to do is swim a total of 250 lengths across the month, either on your own or as part of a team. In response to demand we’ve also expanded our fundraiser to include open water swimmers who want to swim for 250 minutes during September. 

You can get your friends and family to sponsor you so that every stroke you take helps ensure no one has to face sight loss alone. 

If you raise up to £50, you’ll receive a Beacon Swim 250 Medal, if you raise £100 or over, you’ll get a medal and a personalised tote bag!

What are you waiting for? Let’s get splashing!
