Staff swim 200 lengths and raise over £1200 for Cancer Research UK.
Ellie, Emily, Emma and Pippa (and her daughter!) completed a Swimathon on April 27, 2018, for Cancer Research UK. The Swimathon was 5K, which was the equivalent to 200 lengths, and the team managed to raise over £1200 for Cancer Research UK, Crown Simmons’ charity of the year.
Cancer Research UK is the world’s largest cancer charity that is dedicated to saving lives through research, and is a worthy cause close to the heart of the organisation.
The team began training for the Swimathon in February and were particularly lucky to have Ellie on the team, an ex-county swimmer, and Emily who had also ran the Brighton marathon the week before, in 3hours and 35minutes!
Emma Solomons, Customer Services Director and Deputy Chief Executive said of the event:
I’m so proud of everyone who swam and say a huge thank you to everyone who donated! It is fantastic as a small housing association that we are able to support other charities every year.
