John Adams product manager Lynette Norris braved cold and choppy waters to complete the Great London Swim on Saturday May 26th.
Norris finished the swim – which is a full mile in the Thames beginning at the Royal Victoria Dock – in 45 minutes and 43 seconds.
"Not too bad for a first attempt," she said. "I was just really happy and relieved to have completed it."
Norris added: "I just want to say thank you to each and every person who has supported me in any way, in particular John Adams and Seven Towns who between them gave my total a nice boost. The final figure looks like it will reach around £1,300 once I have added money collected offline."
