Raise funds in an open water swim

Apply for a charity place for the Fireworks 500 swim 

We are very excited to be able to offer 20 fundraising places at a 500m open water swim! This is a great opportunity to raise money for Beat SCAD by taking part in a fantastic night-time open water swim, followed by a fireworks display!

T2 Events have kindly discounted the places for The Fireworks 500 in November 2023, at Capernwray Dive Centre near Lancaster.

Places are free but there is a minimum fundraising commitment of £300 per entrant.

To apply for a place, please click here and complete the form. We’ll need your name, address, date of birth, email address and any relevant medical conditions. This information will be shared with T2 Events and the dive centre staff.

You will need to provide suitable equipment. T2 Events recommend wetsuits, neoprene gloves, hats and socks. The water temperature is about 12ºC but can feel lower depending on the outdoor temperature.

T2 Events also ask you to provide tow floats with lights in (this reduces the use of glow sticks, which are less environmentally friendly).

For more information about this amazing event, go to the T2 Events website. And click the button below to enter.

You can also buy t-shirts (£15) and hoodies (£25) from T2 Events via their contact page. Please let them know what size you require.
