The Swimarathon is one of the largest fundraising events in Jersey.
It started in 1972 and has raised over £3.4m since then. We are delighted with how the event has become a community event with schools, corporate, club, charity and family teams taking part. We are delighted to have a long term sponsor in Ravenscroft for the event. Find out more:

Could you enter the 'Lions Den' and be the winners of the LIONS ANNUAL CHARITY BURSARY?
Following the receipt of a generous bequest from the late Robert E. Brown’s estate, the Lions of Jersey have established a bursary scheme for both primary and senior schools.
We invite groups of young people, from schools to compete for the bursary by telling us how they would spend charitable money for the good of the community.
The Lions believe that whereas the young people of Jersey have always excelled in helping raise funds for numerous charities across a range of events, they rarely get the opportunity to put significant funds to good use themselves.
In addition to providing the funding for the selected group, we will also provide mentoring support to help guide you towards achieving your aims. A panel of judges appointed by the Lions will select the group and project & award the bursary and you may be asked to make a presentation to 'The Lions Den' ' judges.

LIONS CLUBS INTERNATIONAL was founded in 1917 in the United States by businessman Melvin Jones who felt that successful people like himself and his colleagues should devote some of the energies which had enabled them to succeed in business to serving their local communities. Appropriately he chose “We Serve” as the Lions’ motto.
Lions Clubs now exist in more than 170 countries and more than 2.5 million men and women wear the distinctive lapel pin.
The Lions Club of Jersey was formed in November 1963, at the instigation of the Lions Clubs of Southampton and St. Malo. Today, there are still eight members of the Jersey Lions Club who were among the founders.
Lion Mark Godel is the 2019/20 President of the Lions Club of Jersey.
