Julie Gregory, completed the Breakwater swim 2020, in Plymouth Sound. The 4K open water swim saw Julie battle 4-5 foot waves with a 30mph North Westerly wind. The swimming conditions were incredibly tough, when many swimmers needed assistance. However Julie, who has been in training for months pushed on and completed the long distance swim. The swim was organised to raise money for The Chestnut Appeal, a charity raising money for Prostate Cancer. Swimmers were taken by boat out of the breakwater and then had to swim back to Tinside.
Whilst Amanda Southern, who took part in the Couch to 5K in 2019, has spent September walking to raise money for Dementia UK. The target was to walk 1 mile a day, however Amanda has so far walked 41.5 miles and is set for a personal target of 50 miles. Additionally she has raised an amazing £500 for Dementia UK. During her walks, she has endured wet weather, but still managed to smile. Many of the walks she has been accompanied by friends and family and managed to enjoy some Me Time, in some wonderful local locations, including Sibleyback, and Golitha Falls.
