The swimming group is held at Crown Pools in Ipswich, IP1 3JA.
This is a monthly fun session on a Sunday from 3.00 pm – 5.00 pm. It is for children of any age whose parents have cancer. Parents attend too but can choose to swim or sit on the poolside and chat to other parents. However, if a child is under 8 a parent will need to be in the water with them.
There are pool buddies who will supervise the children and create some fun, and after the swim children are given a meal and a drink. Tea and coffee is provided for adults. Families then have the time to chat and offer each other support.
Other family activities are organised throughout the year.
There is no charge for the swim or meal as funded by the Survivorship charity fund.

The centre is open Monday to Friday – 9.00 am to 4.00 pm.Back to top
