Swim for Life - 24th June 2012
On Sunday 24 June 2012, brave Viva! swimmers, Juliet Gellatley, Veronika Powell, Rhiannon Buck, Ash George and Andy Cox awoke on a dank morning in the Lake District. They didn’t know what to expect, even whether the event would actually take place as the waters were too treacherous the previous day. As it happened, the conditions had marginally improved – it was on.
The Great North Swim is a 1 mile swim in the beautiful (but freezing!) Lake District town of Windermere. Miraculously, the entire Viva! team survived and made it back home that day! They raised almost £5,000 for Viva!.
