Ever thought about swimming The Solent? Well, here’s your chance…
Swim for Hope is a 1.3-mile cross-Solent swim, starting at Hurst Point in Hampshire and finishing at Colwell Bay on the Isle of Wight.
The swim will take place on Sunday 30th June 2024 with an estimated start time of 5:00am (time to be confirmed, tide and weather dependant). The swim has been hugely popular in previous years and raises funds for our Isle of Wight services which support thousands of Islanders affected by cancer every year.
Swimmers must have experience in either open water or sea swimming prior to the event date.
Practical and emotional support is provided by the Isle of Wight’s wellbeing centre in Newport, while our two free minibus services transport Island patients to their hospital appointments in both Southampton and Portsmouth. Each bus provides more than 10,000 passenger journeys for cancer patients annually.
Date: Sunday, 30th June 2024
