Upcoming Events

Henley Lions Annual Swimarathon

Henley Lions will be holding our annual Swimarathon on Sunday, 26 April 2020.  All schools, clubs, businesses and other organisations are most welcome and encouraged to attend.  Swimmers get sponsorship for the number of lengths of the pool that they and their team swim during a 40 minute session. Half of the money that each team raises goes to the cause that they are supporting and the other half comes to the Henley Lions Charity Account which supports local charitable causes. Further details will be published closer to the date but, for now, save the date and start getting your teams ready!!
