SandpiperCI donates to the Bluetits Swimming Club fundraiser

23rd May 2021

The Bluetits swimming club hosted a swim this Sunday at Bouley Bay. The swim was in celebration of Wendy Trehiou’s 10th year of being cancer-free and to raise money for Macmillan Jersey Cancer Support.

The Jersey Bluetits swim club, which has approximately 500 members, asked swimmers and supporters to decorate and wear pink bras, while men were asked to decorate their “bad buoys” in order to turn the sea pink.

Sandpiper was delighted to provide some luxurious gifts for the best dressed for the day.
