BDO Group supports the Lions club Swimarathon 2021
09 July 2021
BDO Group in Jersey is proud to be supporting the Lion’s Swimarathon, sponsored by Ravenscroft.
BDO Group’s technology arm, C5 Alliance, has been involved through the development of a Power App that is being used to manage the logistics of organising and running the Swimarathon event.
Damon Greber, Head of Advisory Services at BDO and a member of this year’s Lions Club of Jersey organising committee, commented: “Following the cancellation of last year’s event, our aim was to provide technology support to The Lions Club of Jersey to assist them in delivering this important community event and raising as much money as possible for local beneficiaries. The pandemic has been a tough time for our community, including for charities that rely on fundraising support to provide their vital services. The Swimarathon will give people an opportunity to come together, to have fun and to support some of these local charities. The Swimarathon theme this year is ‘Helping Teenagers Thrive’, and as an organising committee we hope that nearly 4,000 people will swim across the five days. I am very proud to be involved with The Lions Club of Jersey and with this event, and I am thrilled that BDO Group were able to assist; we look forward to seeing how much money can be raised this year.”
The Lion’s Swimarathon, sponsored by Ravenscroft, is an annual five-day swimming event and is the longest running community fundraiser in Jersey. This year the event is taking place on 3-7 July 2021 at Les Quennevais Sports Centre. The theme for the event is ‘Helping Teenagers Thrive’ and will support five local charities being Brighter Futures, Brightly, Jersey Youth Trust, Teenage Cancer Trust and YouMatter.
BDO have entered a team to swim.
