Swimarathon - Jersey

In 2019, Ravenscroft stepped in as a last minute sponsor for the Jersey Swimarathon, which is an 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, which will be the 50th anniversary. Unfortunately, the 2020 Swimarathon was cancelled as a result of coronavirus but islanders generously donated money which the Lions Club will use to assist those charities impacted by the pandemic. The five beneficiaries from 2020 will now be the beneficiaries of the 2021 event, which will be held from 3rd - 7th March at Les Quennevais.
