FREE FAMILY SWIM FOR BRITISH GAS CUSTOMERS

07 Sep 2009

Families who use British Gas can visit their local pool and swim for free as part of the energy provider’s new Free Family Swim programme.

Launched by swimming legend and working mum Sharron Davies, along with swimming celebrities Tom Daley and Rebecca Adlington, British Gas Free Family Swim is an exciting initiative aimed at introducing swimming to households that never swim and encouraging households that do swim to swim more often.

As the Principal Partner of British Swimming and The ASA, British Gas are offering all of their customers a voucher that entitles them to a free family swim, valid for up to two adults and three children from now until the end of March next year.

British Gas customers simply enter their unique customer reference number onto the special website and progress through a few easy steps to book and print their own Free Swim voucher, or receive one in the post.

The website includes a Pool Finder with details of hundreds of pools across the country participating in the programme.

To claim your free swim, click here to visit the Free Family Swim website.
