The Outdoor Swimmer Henley Swim Festival is set on the most stunning stretch of the Thames and includes multiple-distances, from a 4 mile challenge, one mile, half mile to a 200m splash for children aged 8+. There is nothing quite as exhilarating as swimming in open water, a sport that continues to grow around the world and which offers both physical and mental benefits.

We are an official charity partner for the Henley Swim Festival 2020! Sign up today for free and help young people with cancer. 

You can make a weekend of it with camping on site, live music, bar, entertainment and a retail village filled with experts and product demos.

How you can help young people

  • £50 could provide 2 hours of vital nursing care by a Teenage Cancer Trust Clinical Nurse specialist who understands what it's like for a young person fighting cancer, to help them feel less frightened about what's ahead.
  • £100 could enable a young person to come together with 29 others for a 1 day music therapy workshop that are arranged every March backstage at Teenage Cancer Trust's concerts at The Royal Albert Hall.
  • £250 could pay for a young person to attend our annual Find your Sense of Tumour weekend conference, enabling them to meet others with cancer, often for the first time.
  • £400 could provide 20 hours of tailored support by a Teenage Cancer Trust Youth Support Coordinator. These skilled staff keep young people active, encourage them to socialise and share experiences, and in this way help them to gain some control over their illness.
