Team South Coast Mermaids’s story

12 Hour Mermaid Swim – a new world record?

Anna from South Coast Mermaids (me) will be swimming for 12 hours in a mermaid tail – aiming to create a new world record! 

I am raising money and awareness of two important charities: Arundel Lido and Chestnut Tree House.

I am passionate about swimming for FUN! Both of these charities help make that a reality for so many people. 

Read all about Arundel Lido and my story with them here.

Here are all the details you need to know about the sponsored swim!

It’s taking place at the gorgeous Arundel Lido on September 22nd 2019, overlooked by Arundel Castle. 

I will be swimming for 12 hours in a mono fin and tail in order to raise money for two charities (Arundel and Downland Leisure Trust – who run Arundel Lido and Chestnut Tree House).

My tail is being custom designed by FinFun in America and will be inspired by Arundel Castle and Gardens.

How can you get involved? Lots of ways! 

  1. You can swim next to me in hour slots (or half hour slots for younger swimmers)
  2. You can sponsor me or any of the swimmers
  3. You can come down and support us on the day – September 22nd 2019 7am – 7pm
  4. You can share this post far and wide to help people find out about this exciting mermaid world record swim!

All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.


Arundel and Downland Community Leisure Trust

Arundel Lido’s Heated Outdoor Swimming Pools are very popular – but are only open for 4 months every Summer.

We have Planning Permission for a new building with Gym, Multi-purpose Hall, Indoor Café and Heated Changing Rooms.

This will allow us to stay open all-year-round.

But we need help to fund this project!    

Registered Charity Number: 1091478.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
