    It's that time of year again! The annual Sponsored Swim for Leon is on Friday 7 July this year. Drop in any time during the event to swim as many or a few lengths as you fancy! Oxford Leon Association Trust will be providing snacks and drinks to reward hungry swimmers, and you're welcome to come and cheer on those swimming lengths too. 

    If you can't make it on the day then you're welcome to swim your lengths in your own time within 2 weeks of our event - we're grateful for your support.

    Register online

    Last year we were able to raise more than £5000 for clean water projects in Nicaragua, where many of the local water supplies are contaminated by arsenic. Let's raise even more to make a difference to those less fortunate than us who have water so readily at hand!
