Liz and Helen make a splash!

Liz Day and Helen Thurley recently swam across Alton water to raise money for Cambridgeshire Mencap


Liz and Helen's charity swimLiz Day and Helen Thurley recently took part in the Great East swim to raise money for Cambridgeshire Mencap. They swam across Alton water reservoir - the conditions were apalling - with high winds, torrential rain and very cold water.

They managed to make it across the reservoir and raised an amazing 1600 for us! They would like to thank everyone who sponsored them and a special thanks to those who gave them loads of encouragement and support - it was very much appreciated!

If this has inspired you to take up the fundraising challenge to to the fundraising section on our website to find out more!
