Join us for the UK's biggest open water swimming event, the Great North Swim. This is a perfect challenge for swimmers of all abilities, including beginners, with a family-friendly, party atmosphere. Surrounded by some of the nation's most spectacular natural scenery - the Lake District National Park - the Great North Swim is an inspiring outdoor swim. To keep you safe, you'll be accompanied by trained water-safety kayakers, lifeguards and boats.  Why not make a weekend of it and take the whole family along?

Why Child Bereavement UK?

Child Bereavement UK helps children, parents and families to rebuild their lives when a child grieves or when a child dies. We support children and young people up to the age of 25 who are facing bereavement, and anyone affected by the death of a child of any age. We provide training to professionals in health and social care, education, and the voluntary and corporate sectors, equipping them to provide the best possible care to bereaved families

When you fundraise for us, you’ll receive:

  • a welcome email and fundraising pack from our events team
  • support from our dedicated fundraising and events team to achieve your target
  • e-newsletters updating you with news from across the charity
  • access to our online Facebook group, where other fundraisers share training and fundraising advice

Please note: Due to the ongoing pandemic, there may be changes made to events that are outside of Child Bereavement UK's control. If any changes are made, such as a change in date, we will ensure we inform you as soon as possible.

Got your own place?

Do you have a place already? We would love you to join our team this year and fundraise to help us support bereaved families to rebuild their lives. There’s no minimum sponsorship, all we ask is you raise as much as you can. You'll still receive the same support from our dedicated fundraising team!
