Ystradgynlais Swimming Club is a non-competitive swimming club based in South Wales.
Head coach Phil Rees volunteered at the club for almost 30 years. Helping thousands of children and young adults to stay active and engage in swimming.

Phils three year old grandson Joseph was recently diagnosed with stage 4 high risk Neuroblastoma, a very rare form of childhood cancer. Josephs family are fundraising to give Joseph access to every available treatment. Especially if his front line treatment does not go to plan. This could cost hundreds of thousands of pounds.

The members of Ystradgynlais Swimming Club aged 6-15 plan to swim the length of the British Channel - 22 miles and 1416 lengths between them in just 2 hours. To help raise money for Joseph and his treatment.
