One of our aims as a Social Enterprise has always been inclusivity. We want to reduce barriers to people finding the fun and friendship that so many of us have found through our love of cold water swimming and the Bluetitting that surrounds it.
The theme for our winter challenge this year is combating loneliness through connection. Our world is facing huge uncertainties, causing stress and worry for large sections of our society.
Whether it be cost of living, or isolation, we are aware that people need as much support as possible to help them through what is expected to be a very difficult winter. Experiencing cold-water swimming and dipping with friends is a low-cost way for people to get outside, into nature, and to feel the mental and physical benefits of being part of a community as well as those of cold-water swimming and dipping itself.
Through our social media and with the help of our local volunteers we approached local businesses to sponsor this year's challenge so that we can offer free places to those who need it. The businesses have sponsored places in flocks local to them, in order to help strengthen community ties this winter.
These free places are designed to help out those who are struggling financially. So if thats you, or someone you know, we want you to be included, to take part in a challenge that might make this winter a bit less s**t.
Places are limited and are on a first come first served basis.
