The Outdoor Swimmer Society has some incredible prizes on offer for their Christmas Cracker Crowdfunder, including an ice bath, a swim holiday in Greece and a guided swimming weekend in the Lake District

The Outdoor Swimmer Society (OSS) has launched their Christmas Cracker Crowdfunder with some incredible prizes on offer, including an ice bath, a swim holiday in Greece and guided swimming weekend in the Lake District.

The OSS is just over halfway to their fundraising target of £20,000, which will help the volunteer-led organisation continue to run their 200,000-strong community, their free monthly journal, website and right-to-swim campaign.

Community spirit

“We have raised over £12,000 so far – however, we still have a way to go,” says the OSS team. “Millions of swimmers furthered their swimming lives through us last year. We are proud to provide a space, for free, to protect the heart and soul of free outdoor swimming. We mostly achieve this by volunteering, but every now and again we need your help! And there’s a 1 in 100 chance of winning some fabulous prizes!”

Pledges to the crowdfunder start at £5, and entrants will entered into a prize draw with rewards including a group snorkeling session, Dart 10K tickets, a weekend in an Ullswater hotel (with swim coaching and guiding), and specialist wetsuits: all prizes tailored for the adventurous, water-loving, and environmentally-minded outdoor swimmer.
