Covid-19 Relief Fund
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Swimathon Foundation was acutely aware that the swimming and aquatics community has been facing a very difficult time with multiple rounds of closures of swimming facilities across the UK. Therefore, back in May 2020 and again in February 2021, Swimathon Foundation established and promoted its COVID-19 Relief Fund to offer grant funding for small organisations working in the swimming and aquatic community in the UK. Through grants made from the Fund, it supported existing small swimming and aquatics organisations so that they could continue to operate in these especially difficult times. Organisations could apply for grants of a minimum amount of £250 and up to a maximum of £1,000. In June 2020 and March 2021, a total of £80,000 was granted to hundreds of organisations across the UK.
