Park Authority sponsorship boost for Boxing Day Swim’s belated half century
Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority is delighted to be one of the main sponsors of this year’s Tenby Boxing Day Swim.
The popular event will mark its belated 50th anniversary this year, after Covid-19 enforced cancellations of the event in 2020 and 2021.
Chair of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Di Clements said:
“The Authority is delighted to be helping this well-supported community event celebrate its half-century landmark, especially as the National Park celebrates its own notable 70-year milestone this year.
“We hope this support will help raise much needed funds for a range of local causes, recognise the efforts of the brave participants and link to the Authority’s wider winter of well-being support programme, helping communities across the Park to stay well this winter.”
Chairman of the Tenby Sea Swimming Association, Chris Osborne added:
“The swim’s stunning location on Tenby’s North Beach calls for continuing collaboration between community events organisers, like Tenby Sea Swimming Association, and environmental custodians such as the Park Authority.
“These joint anniversaries, and this generous sponsorship for which we are very grateful, are a choice way of celebrating this partnership.”
The 2022 Tenby Boxing Day Swim is raising money for the Tenby Memory Café, the Dai Rees Foundation, Tenby RNLI and the Paul Sartori Foundation.
Swimmers are asked to register online and make a small donation to help cover the cost of organising the event, which will ensure more of the sponsorship money raised goes to the chosen good causes.
