50th Anniversary Cross Channel Swim

Hastings & St Leonards Voluntary Lifeguard Club celebrates its golden jubilee in 2022.

In recognition of the Club’s 50 years of lifesaving and lifeguarding activity 5 club members will be attempting a cross-Channel relay swim. Some of the team members were part of a successful Club relay team of 6 who completed a crossing in 2008.

Look out for information on the team members, progress reports and other news. Please read the updates and tell your friends about Hastings Voluntary Lifeguards.

Funds raised by sponsorship of this event will go towards the cost of a new rescue boat which will be needed so that the Club can continue to provide lifeguard safety cover for local events.

Please support the Club and its Channel swim team in this fundraising challenge.

Thank you from everyone at Hastings & St Leonards Voluntary Lifeguard Club.
