Making waves in Windermere
A gruelling swim by Dave Neal took him along the 10.5-mile length of Windermere in the Lake District to raise funds for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research. Dave has been passionate about raising funds for such research since his wife’s best friend died of leukaemia, at the age of 26, after battling the disease for a number of years.
The £1,400 sponsorship money for the swim, which took six hours and 49 minutes to complete, has gone to the Claire Wadley Forget Me Not Fund within Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.
Dave’s lodge, Indaba, No. 9454, donated the funds to enable him to hire an electric boat to support him on his epic swim. His father, Allan, also of Indaba Lodge, was one of the team on his support boat.
