Anyone with a blood donor card, or who has written proof that they are a registered blood donor, can present it at reception and receive a free swim, at a specified time.

Active Northumberland employee Jane Hardy has brought the campaign to Northumberland and recently swam with work colleagues and Alnwick Sea Swimmers from the Farne Islands to Bamburgh Castle, raising over £500 for the Bloodwise charity.
