Swimmers take the plunge for charity

A group of women from around Southampton, who have been touched by the work of Wessex Heartbeat, are preparing to swim the Serpentine to raise money for the charity.


The ‘Cardiac Crawlers’ team includes Laura Gray, 71, who has seen first-hand the support Wessex Heartbeat offers. She said: “It’s hard to put into words what it means to have a reassuring chat to someone in the ICU at 2am, or when a staff member sees the numbing effect of distress, and takes the time to patiently explain again, and again, so that we really understand what’s happening.”


The swim will take place on 22nd September. To sponsor the team visit www.justgiving.com/fundraising/cardiaccrawlers.
