Well done to our two fantastic swimmers Rachel Mercer and Emma Irwin who both completed the Great North Swim in June in Lake Windermere in aid of St John’s Hospice. Between them they raised a fantastic £660.00 which will go directly towards supporting people living in our community. Emma said it was great and she loved every minute of it.
Rachel said ‘I absolutely loved it. It was an amazing experience and was proud I made it. The water was surprisingly warmer than I expected at 20 degrees is tropical compared with Capernwray! I’m just grateful I finished and have raised some money for the hospice.’
If you would like to swim next year and support the hospice, please contact the Fundraising Team in Kendal on 01539 733228 or email [email protected].
