Huge congratulations to Adoption Support team members Jo and Andrea for completing the Great North Swim recently and raising over £400 for our teen group and support services in the process.

This was the first time that either Jo or Andrea had attempted an open-water swim and they both completed the mile long course in the challenging environment of Lake Windermere in under an hour.

Andrea said, “We had a fantastic time. It was really hard work and the weather was awful, but Jo and I got each other through the challenge and it was an amazing experience.”

“Would I do it again? Maybe not!”

“Thank you very much to everyone who has sponsored us so generously for this great cause.”

Well done ladies. We’re very proud of our colleagues for their amazing accomplishment.
