Take the plunge and swim with Colostomy UK

05 February, 2020

Our Active Ostomates swimming  sessions are returning to Londonderry / Derry again for 2020 with Templemore Sports Complex hosting the first one of the year.

Monday March 16th is the big date. The session runs from 15:00 to 17:00. There’s no organised activity or lessons, just the chance for people to get used to being in the water and having a swim in a supportive and friendly environment.

The event is free for all ostomates and their family members to attend. You just need to confirm your place in advance by contacting Chris Morrison:

or call 07599538159

You don’t need to take any additional steps to enjoy a swim. Your stoma bag has been designed with water in mind, although if stickers come with your box, they can be used to cover the filter and stop it clogging in water.

Fancy attending but not swam since stoma surgery? Check out Tasha’s top tips  for swimming with a stoma.

We’ll be adding further sessions across the UK soon.

Monday 16th March. Templemore Sports Complex, Buncrana Road, Derry / Londonderry, Northrn Ireland BT8 7QL between 15:00 and 17:00
