Chris & Bear 365 day Sea Swim Challenge

Chris & Bear Sea Swim Challenge 43561294_1574345530700146_r.jpeg

Rob & I would like to raise funds for two local organisations. Shoalstone sea water pool & The seal project.

Shoalstone Pool 

Sitting on the edge of Brixham's rugged coastline. During summer months the pool is a haven for locals & holiday makers, providing generations of pool users, with fond memories of long summer days & refreshing dips in the pool. 

Out of season the entire pool area is open to the winter weather & regularly gets battered by easterly storms, causing damage to railings, concrete surfaces, changing areas & facilities.

These repairs & general maintenance are paid for by donations & volunteers, we would like to help maintain the history & heritage for future generations.

The Seal Project

Our message: Give wildlife space, Do not feed wild seals, Be kind.

The Torbay Seal Project is a Grey seal conservation project in Torbay which contributes to scientific research and help us further understand this globally rare mobile species. In addition to data collection & management the project aims to raise awareness of the need to protect Grey seals in Torbay and create ways in which communities and visitors can support such as educational talks.

We hope to raise over £5000 over the remaining days of our 365 day challenge, leaving 231 days of fund raising.  It would be fantastic for us, with your help, to reach or even exceed our target. 

If we can raise just £25 per day, we can go beyond our targets, we would be very grateful for your kind donation, however large or small.
