The Rotary Club of Thornbury Members
Swimarathon in progress supported by the Panache steel band
Rotary's main objective is to serve their communities by providing personal and financial assistance to local charities and good causes. For 40 years, the annual Thornbury Swimarathon has been the area's major community event, raising and donating over £500,000
Teams of friends, family members, colleagues or club members, usually six in number, swim lengths in turn; each individual - or the whole team - seek sponsor-ship for their efforts.
The Event is hosted by the Thornbury Leisure Centre, and over the years has been generously supported financially or with services by many local companies large and small, enabling all individual sponsors' funds to be distributed.
Each year, the Club President chooses two local or regional charities or organisations to be the principal beneficiaries, together with funding Rotary to make smaller donations as and when required.
