Welcome from Steve The Swimming Gardener!

(For news on the splash4cash and how it went, got to ‘news’ tab)

Endurance charity swimmer for the Chestnut Tree House Childrens Hospice in West Sussex. As the Swimming Gardener (aka Steve White) I have raised in excess of £20,000 for various causes and am now firmly nestled in fundraising for this wonderful organisation in the Beautiful South Downs National Park.

Previously, I have swum many organised events, the big one in 2011 being the Pier to Pier challenge, swimming from Littlehampton to Worthing Pier and back, some 15 miles non stop.

A unique and unrivalled opportunity for 2013, you could win £1000 of hot lolly!

Happy to announce the Swimming Gardener’s Splash 4 Cash- a new concept in fundraising and a chance to win £1000!

How to win:

You will be asked to predict how many metres The Swimming Gardener will complete on a gruelling 10 hour swim in the English Channel and the into the River Arun in West Sussex. Quite simply, closest guess will take the winners prize of £1000 cash. Sounds easy? Well the swim certainly isn’t, and each guess will cost £10 with £2 going to the RNLI in recognition of their keen support!  For more details click here.

The prize fund has been donated as such by two outstanding Sussex Businesses!

Both Jeremy Silverthorne Jewellers and Shoreham Vehicle Auctions have clubbed together and come up with the outstanding prize sum of £1000 to the lucky winner, a massive thanks to them is due!
