Charity Swims Update

Our Business Manager, Ann Divers, has completed 3 lake swimming events to raise money for charity. Ann has spent several months training for the outdoor swimming challenges, as detailed in our previous blog post.

This month, she completed the Crossmicheal Triathlon on Sunday, 7th September. Ann completed the swimming portion, whilst her two team mates participated in the cycling and running events. She swam for a full 1.2 miles(without stopping!) in Loch Ken.

Ann and her team mates picked up a medal for their participation, as well as winning a wooden spoon; the consolation prize given to the team that finished last! Ann plans to join her teammates again for next year’s triathlon.

She then went on to complete the Windermere Cross Lake Swim just 20 days later, for which she received another medal. Ann said “Sunday’s Lake Windermere one was my favourite of the whole lot and Ill be doing that one again next year. To those who sponsored me Id like to say a massive thank you to you all!”

Ann has already begun planning next year’s swims, and will continue to train over winter after recently joining a local triathlon club.

Best of all, she has raised an amazing 222.85 for Glasgow-based charity Children 1st. Well done Ann!

Ann’s Just Giving account is still active if you would like to help her reach her goal of 300.
