A massive congratulations to all those who braved the English Channel on July 1st for the British Heart Foundation’s Bournemouth Pier to Pier Swim. Taking place between Bournemouth Pier and Boscombe Pier, around 1,500 swimmers took part in the epic 1.4-mile open water swim to raise much-needed money for the BHF’s life-saving research.
We were thrilled to be involved in the challenge and set up base on the beautiful Bournemouth beach with our standout JAZZ™ apple tent on what turned out to be a glorious, British summer’s day.
The JAZZ™ team was on hand to greet the swimmers as they crossed the finish line with a special goody bag containing a JAZZ™ apple nine-box – the ultimate refreshment after an enduring swimming challenge – and a JAZZ™ apple and British Heart Foundation Bournemouth Pier to Pier Swim finisher t-shirt.
To hear some of the stories from those taking part was heart-warming and the commitment and effort on show was truly amazing. The swimming challenge may be over for now but you can still donate to the British Heart Foundation here – Donate to the BHF.
