The Rt. Hon. The Lord Mayor of Cardiff, Cllr Bob Derbyshire challenged himself to a 2-mile swim in his local pool on Monday 8th January 2018. This was an opportunity to raise money for the Lord Mayor's chosen charities RSPB Cymru and Buglife Cymru. Many animals and insects find this time of year very tough and rely more and more on people putting out food and shelter in their gardens. Many of our favourites like the butterflies, hedgehogs and garden birds are declining at an alarming rate. To find out more about the two charities and how to donate, please visit

Please dig deep and lend your support for these worthwhile causes.

Fergus Feeney Chief Executive of Swim Wales commented. “We are delighted that The Lord Mayor of Cardiff chose swimming as a way of promoting his chosen charities. We would like to congratulate him on a fantastic effort in completing the 2 mile swim.”
