Meet Lucy who is swimming the channel on Friday and raising money for us. She lives in Surrey with her husband, son, two cats and Storm the dog (he’s in the pic!!).
She has always loved the water but came to swim seriously, more recently in life. When her son starting swimming lessons as a baby, she decided to qualify as a Swimming Teacher, and to so began her career change.
She now coaches openwater swimmers, club swimmers and disabled swimmers and although her son is now faster than she is super proud of all his outstanding achievements. 😂
When we asked her why she had chosen SwimTayka as her chosen charity she said this:
“Swim Tayka is an amazing charity and one I support wholeheartedly. I’m lucky to work with so many children whose lives are enriched by learning water safety and swimming technique. Too many children in the world are not so lucky. I’m shocked by the drowning rate worldwide. Hopefully, my 2020 challenges will help to make a difference and raise awareness of Swim Tayka’s valuable work.”
Later in the year Lucy is joining our team relay and will swim the channel again – she’ll be able to do it with her eyes closed.
Good luck Lucy! To sponsor her click on the link.
