Supporting Brainwave in the UK: Brainwave is a charity offering therapy to children with disabilities and additional needs to help them achieve their potential.
On Saturday 18th June five very brave Global Marine colleagues took on the challenge of the Great East Swim held in Alton Water, Suffolk.
Along with almost 300 other swimmers, Dave Dunk, Spike Johns, Alex Riddell and John Wrottesley took to the lake on what was a grey, damp and windy day, tackling the choppy waters for 2 miles. Stuart Wilson, who entered the 1/2 mile race, came running up the finishing ramp in a very impressive 18mins 04 seconds – 6th in his category.
A big thank you to everyone who has sponsored the team already and raised £245 for Brainwave, one of our corporate charities, and £160 for the Royal Life Saving Society so far. More donations are still very welcome at the team's JustGiving page: /www.justgiving.com/teams/GlobalMarineEastSwim
