The Thomas Smith
Christmas Charity Swim

The Thomas Smith Christmas Charity Swim is an annual event organised in aid of the Malta Community Chest Fund. Now in its 19th year, the Charity Swim will be held off the pier by Independence Garden, Sliema, on the 17th of December. We invite you to grab your favourite swimsuit and come join us for a day of splashes, laughter and fun – while participating for a good cause and helping those in need.

This much-awaited event is held under the patronage of the Office of the President. On the day, registration starts at 09:30hrs and the swim will commence at 10:30hrs.

To register, you can pick from two options:

Registration on the day:
Participants can fill in a registration form at the registration desk –registration kicks off at 09:30am. There will be two desks: one on the promenade, and a smaller one by the swimmer zone.

Registration in advance:
If you want to beat the queues, you can download the registration form in advance, fill it in, and bring it to the desk on the day.

Encourage your friends, family and colleagues to join you. If they’re don’t feel like getting their toes wet, ask them to sponsor your heroic gesture by donating further for the Malta Community Chest Fund and highlight the total donation you have managed to collect on the registration form.

Any contribution is welcome, however, we urge family, friends and colleagues to help sponsor swimmers to raise €50 per participant prior to the swim.
