Welcome to the Virtual Channel Swim charity challenge page in support of Scotty’s LITTLE Soldiers, the charity for bereaved British Forces children.

Go the full distance and swim the length of the English Channel for Scotty’s, in the safety of your local pool. Set yourself a realistic time frame and complete the challenge at your own pace. 

Take the plunge and sign up to this 21-mile swim to raise much needed funds to support children and young people who have experienced the death of a parent who served in the armed forces. £100 pays for five children to receive a meal voucher at Remembrance, or it will enable four children to have a hand selected gift to open on their birthday, or it may go towards an educational grant to help with development. Don’t forget that if you raise £50, we will send you a free Scotty’s Morale patch. Hit the £100 mark and a free running vest or t-shirt will be on its way to you. 

Sign up today and bathe in the glory of doing something amazing.
