Hoplite Swim

Event date: 25th November 2023

Ian Sharpe is raising money for Hoplite Fund

My story

PLEASE dive in with me as I embark on this EPIC challenge!

Swimming the distance of the English channel, which is a whopping 1352 lengths of a standard swimming pool (33,800m). My target is to conquer this in under 14 hours! but hopefully closer to 12.5.

Why am I doing this?

The HOPLITE Fund was established in 2006 to support serving members, their families, and veterans of one of the largest regiments in the British Army. The objective of the Fund is to provide the support, facilities and activities to enhance the wellbeing, health and welfare needs of our people.

Recent activities have included; providing medical equipment to enhance the recovery and rehabilitation of injured personnel, facilitating ‘respite’ breaks for families, enabling counselling services, and routinely endorsing one-off grants to meet immediate needs in times of personal crisis.

As a result of the generosity of our supporters, our people are better able to withstand the stresses and strains of military life. Your support in helping us achieve this is very much appreciated.

So jump in and we can make a splash together!
