Our Lisa swims at 95 to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care

By November 16, 2014No Comments

Lisa is our oldest member

To celebrate her 95th birthday, Lisa will jump into water and swim 8 lengths at her local full-size pool in Porthcawl, Mid-Glamorgan, Wales. The event is sponsored locally to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care in memory of her eldest son Richard who died of cancer 30 years ago.

Lisa is the oldest member of the British-Slovene Society. In her youth she swam in Slovenia in the waters that flow to the river Danube, and is now reaching a total distance swum in her life of 3,000 kilometres, the length of the mighty Danube.

Lisa will swim at 3pm on Sunday 30th November, at the Splashland swimming pool, Bay View Rd, Porthcawl, CF36 5N

Everyone is welcome to come along and dive into the fun.
