Club chairman completes 5km swim raising funds for club
- Published on 21 September 2016
Teresa our club chair took to the water – but without her oars – raising over £1100 to improve club facilities.
On Saturday 8th October Teresa swam 5kms in open water at Hannam’s Wake Hug, Streatham on the A10.
Teresa said “I wanted to do something that I find difficult. Back in June I could swim the length of a pool - say 25m so, I thought a good challenge would be a 5km open water swim. It wasn't until I started to train that I realised how hard distance swimming is!“
