Great North Swim

Windermere, Lake District

Why not take the plunge for 2023 and raise funds for our hospitals at the UK’s biggest open swim event in Lake Windermere?


The Great North Swim is a weekend-long celebration of open water swimming. Take the fresh dive and swim with thousands of others this June to not only challenge yourself, but make a difference to the thousands of patients cared for by our amazing staff across Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.


There are six different open water swimming distances, to suit all ages, abilities and experience. So whether you’re a veteran open water swimmer or you’re looking to try something new, there’s an option to suit. Taking place 9th-11th June 2023, you can bring along the whole family and make a day of it!

We’d love for you to become part of our fundraising family, so if this sounds right in your swimming lane, then contact our Fundraiser, Lucy, on or give us a call on 01772 528500.


Get swimming for our Hospital Charity and make a real difference to our patients, when they need it the most.
