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 in 2020, 2021 and 2022. Unfortunately, the 2020 Swimarathon was cancelled as a result of coronavirus and due to the ongoing pandemic the 2021 event has been delayed until July in the hope that as many swimmers as possible will be allowed to take part.
The five beneficiaries from 2020, being Brighter Futures, Brightly, the Jersey Youth Trust, the Teenage Cancer Trust and YouMatter will now be the beneficiaries of the 2021 event.
