Nic Cloete-Hopkins is raising funds for Chad le Clos Foundation


I'm Nic, and I'll be doing my first 8-Mile on 9-10 February 2019 for the Friends of Swimmers trust. Any donation will be greatly appreciated and will make a huge difference in the lives of those who love to swim!

I will be doing a raffle that will give you one ticket per R100 donated. Detail will be sent out via email and WhatsApp but the main prize will be 12 bottles of international award winning Leopard Frog red wine ( to the retail value of approximately R3000. Raffle will be drawn on Sunday, 3 February and winners will be notified by telephone. Money can be loaded directly onto this site or to me directly. Please include Name and Surname in any submissions.

Please feel free to share this with anyone who may be interested.


The Trust has two primary objectives:

1: The Trust promotes and provides water safety workshops to communities within KZN. Several learn to swim programs are in place namely LIv-Village School program (Verulam), Maidstone Primary School (Tongaat) and Imbalito Hope College for children with autism (Tongaat). Our mission is to make a positive impact on reducing death by drowning in KZN.

2: The Trust identifies talented swimmers within its programs by offering long term guidance and support which can allow them a carreer in professional sport.
