A keen swimmer in her spare time, the challenge was achieved in just 55 minutes. "I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge, although I'm feeling it a bit now! It was worth it for charity, and I'm ready for any future aquatic adventures. Exercise and fitness is vital in terms of maintaining good mental, as well as physical health. I'd like to thank all my sponsors, as well as the staff at the Mercat Gait Centre for their help." The mile, or 64 lengths of the pool, was completed at the Mercat Gait Centre in Prestonpans, East Lothian. Barbara's efforts have raised an impressive £271 so far.
