Towards the end of term, one of our Public Services students, Henry, completed his swim of the English Channel as part of a relay team raising funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.
They completed the crossing in just under 13 hours, battling strong winds and big waves towards the end which consequently meant they drifted north of the first beach they were meant to reach.
Henry swam two legs at great speed and was clearly at home in the ocean. Each leg was an hour long and he covered approximately 2.5 miles each time. They have so far raised nearly £8,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society – Incredible!
A huge well done to Henry and the rest of his team!
