Verulam ASC is a swimming club based in St Albans.   On the 10th February,  we will be replacing our regular swimming session with a sponsored long distance swim to raise funds for Young Carers in Hertfordshire.  Young carers are often forced to grow up early and miss out on the same opportunities as other children because they are carers,  they are often losing their childhoods and often miss out on vital school and training which can have a negative effect on the rest of their lives.  Providing young carers with breaks from their responsibilities and giving them the opportunity to meet and have fun with other young carers has be shown to be extremely beneficial.  Help us raise funds to support these often invisible children.

Event details

Verulam ASC - Long distance swim
