2019 saw Melton Lions hold their 19th annual Swimarathon. The club takes over the local public swimming baths for the day and sponsored teams swim as many lengths possible in 55 minutes. Over the years Melton Lions have raised over £100K for local charities which this year included Melton Mencap, Hope Against Cancer and the Mayors Appeal (Rainbows & The Derbyshire Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance).

This year's event saw 24 local teams from schools, families, work colleagues and clubs take up the challenge to raise as much sponsorship as possible to contribute to the Melton Lions sponsored charities. 140 swimmers urged on by friends and family entered into the fun and at the end of the event had been pledged over £5000.

The most lengths recorded in the allotted 55 minutes was 215 lenghts by the "Wednesday Nighters" while the "Mencap Marvels"pledged the most sponsored money on the day.
