Swimarathon - Jersey
Ravenscroft has been the principal sponsor of the Jersey Swimarathon since 2019 when we stepped in as a last minute sponsor for the annual fundraiser organised by the Lions Club of Jersey. The Jersey Swimarathon is the island’s largest sporting fundraiser and each year more than 3,500 swimmers take part in the five day event which raises money for five chosen beneficiaries and for the Lions Club to continue its support of charitable causes and islanders in need.
Following the 2019 event, Ravenscroft made a three year commitment to be the main sponsor of the Jersey Swimarathon from 2020-2022. Unfortunately, the 2020 Swimarathon was cancelled as a result of coronavirus, but with some rescheduling the 2021 event was finally able to take place from 3rd - 7th July.
In 2022, the Jersey Swimarathon celebrated a significant milestone when it celebrated its 50th anniversary. Nearly £100,000 was raised with the main beneficiary being the new Community Hub at Maison des Landes which will provide support for elderly islanders and those with disabilities.
Following the 2022 Swimarathon, Ravenscroft has committed to supporting the event for a further three years.
