The Chestnut Appeal Drakes Island Swim 2018

Date: 1st July 2018


The third annual Chestnut Appeal Drakes Island swim will take place on Sunday 1st July with a swim time of 08.00.

Setting off from the Beach at Firestone Bay swimmers will swim to the Island and along before heading back to the Beach. It’s a great swim for anyone new to an organised Open Water Swim with the distance around 1.5km.

Registration for the swim is £30. Your entry fee covers the cost of organising the event, but it’s the money you raise that helps Prostate Cancer patients and their families across Devon and Cornwall.

So we ask all our Drakes Island swimmers set themselves a Sponsorship target of at least £75.

Every 45 minutes, a man dies from prostate cancer in the UK.

To date the Drakes Island swim has raised over £15,000 for the Chestnut Appeal for Prostate Cancer an amount that has helped the charity provide the very latest in equipment for faster diagnosis of prostate cancer now in place at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth.
