RLSS #DontDrinkandDrown

     The #DontDrinkandDrown campaign promotes and encourages people to be safe around water after drinking any form of alcoholic drink. Swansea is a seaside city and we have a university campus right next to the beach and a famous street packed with nightclubs close to the river Tawe. The message of the #DontDrinkandDrown campaign is incredibly important to students of our City to keep them safe after their night out. 

The Partnership

The Wales National Pool in Swansea has teamed up with the Swansea University Students’ Union and the Swansea University Lifesaving Society to raise awareness and money for this crucial cause. Our aim is to educate and show University students the dangers that water can hold, especially when you have a lot of alcohol in your system. The Wales National Pool run a social media campaign every year to raise awareness of the dangers and Swansea University Lifesaving Society raise money for the local RNLI every year to support and help in the case of an emergency.

The Challenge

Therefore, this year we have decided to combine our two activities and run a Swimathon challenge. We will also raise awareness through social media and posters around campus. The Swansea University water-based sport teams will be taken on a massive challenge though. Each team will swim a continuously relay for an hour! Each team member will swim 1 length (25m underwater and 25m underwater) and then swap over. This will be an incredible feat by all teams involved. They are doing this for your donations to raise money for this crucial campaign. So, please donate what you can, not matter how big or how small.

   Above all, every donation we receive helps the RLSS to prevent drowning by equipping people with vital lifesaving skills. It also helps them to educate those most at risk in water safety education. You can donate here – 

Please help us to keep Swansea students safe this winter.
