Splosh for Dosh 2

On a warm Saturday at the end of April 2013, 24 swimmers came together to take part in the second annual Splosh for Dosh sponsored by TYR, swimming a total of 23.24 miles to raise money at Horfield Leisure Centre in Bristol.

Before the event started a minutes silence was held in memory of Chris Penelhum, a patient of the BHOC and dedicated fundraiser, who had passed away just a few weeks before reminding everyone of exactly why they were there.

As the event got underway family and friends cheered the swimmers on, the pool coming alive as the swimmers completed length after length. Once everyone had finished their chosen distance (either 1 mile or 1 km) there was an awards and certificate presentation.
