‘Big Charity Swim’ set to help BTA

on in

People taking part in Rutland's upcoming Big Charity Swim will be able to help The British Tinnitus Association (BTA) by taking part in the open water swim event, it has been revealed.

The Association is one of several charities that participants are able to donate part of their entry fee to.

It says that it does not receive any funding from the government, relying greatly on the support of individuals to carry out its work.

The organisation is encouraging participants to raise sponsorship money by taking part in the Swim, and says that sponsorship money will help tinnitus sufferers.

"The ‘Big Charity Swim’ is a great opportunity to get involved in a challenge. As long as you can swim 500m confidently, whatever your motivation, you will be swimming for a very good cause," commented BTA chief executive, David Stockdale.

The Anglian Water and Inspire2tri event is due to take place at the Rutland Watersports Centre on September 8th this year.

Entry costs £20, with participants able to donate £5 from this to a charity chosen from a range of seven, including the BTA.

To enter you should be able to confidently swim 500m or more, while there is a lower age limit of 15 for participants, according to the inspire2.tri website.

The BTA has recently given word that it is seeking applications for a pair of fundraising position, Fundraising Officer as well as Fundraising Assistant.

It follows the news that it was to provide a Glasgow-set information event about tinnitus later this month.

It is expected that more than 100 people will attend the Grand Central Hotel event, which is set to take place March 23rd.

"The team of experts that we have assembled for the event, as well as the diverse talks, relaxation sessions and exhibitors, will make for a really vibrant and comprehensive day covering all aspects of living with tinnitus," commented David Stockdale.
