By taking to the lake and swimming for us you'll be helping us care for more animals when they need us most. 

The Great North Swim is open to swimmers of all abilities and you will receive lots of hints and tips from the organisers about how to prepare for the swim. 

Please note wetsuits are compulsory if the water temperature falls below 16 degrees. The event organisers have lots of information about what you need on their website.

Join our team with your own place in the Great North Swim

If you have your own place in the Great North Swim for any distance we would love you to join Team Animal and raised money for us. There is no fundraising target, just raise as much as you can for animals in need.
