Our Chair swims the length of Coniston Water for our Charity of the Year

Our Chair, Steve White, swam the length of Coniston Water in the Lake District on the 31 August 2019 to raising over £1,500 for our Charity of the Year, ellenor hospice.

 

 

Despite the very cold, rough conditions, including a hailstorm, Steve completed the 5.25 miles open water swim in just over three hours and was the only above-knee amputee taking part. Coniston Water is the third-largest lake in the Lake District by volume, and the fifth largest by area.
