Rock is delighted to be a sponsor of the annual ‘Padstow to Rock Swim’ and to support the small Cornish village after which the company is named. The swim across the Camel Estuary brings the local community together and raises funds for the Marie Curie charity. It offers participants the unique opportunity of a one-mile open water swim from Padstow to Rock and is the only time that members of the public are allowed to swim the tidal crossing.

Rock’s support enables the provision of professional life guards to escort swimmers across the estuary as well as providing all swimmers with swimming caps.

Marie Curie provides care and support to people living with terminal illnesses and to their families, aiming to help those affected achieve the best quality of life and maintain their independence and dignity for as long as possible.
