The Thomas Smith Christmas Charity Swim


It is with deep regrets that we have to announce that the 2021 Thomas Smith Christmas Charity Swim will not be held this year. For the past 22 years, this event has been a prominent way to raise much-needed funds for charity. Due to the current pandemic restrictions and to ensure no one is put at risk, the management has decided to cancel this year’s event. We will miss you all!

The Thomas Smith Christmas Charity Swim is an annual event organised in aid of Malta Community Chest Fund

We would normally invite you to grab your favourite swimsuit and come to join us for a day of splashes, socialising, laughter and fun, while participating for a good cause and helping those in need. The much-awaited annual event is held under the patronage of the Office of the President.


The swim will be held off the pier by Independence Garden, Sliema.


Participants have to fill a registration form at one of the desk points – one on the promenade and a smaller one by the swimmer zone. Alternatively, beat the queues by downloading the registration form in advance, fill it in and bring it to the desk on the day. A registration form for minors can be downloaded here


Any contribution is welcome. Encourage friends, family and colleagues to join you or ask them to sponsor your heroic gesture with a donation to help you raise more money. If you can’t make it on the day and still want to help, you can still donate by sending a contribution via bank transfer to the following account:
