Our intrepid Information Officer Barbara Wyness will literally be diving head-first into her personal fundraising challenge as she swims a mile for the 1 in 100 campaign.

Barbara will be front-crawling her way to the mile at The Mercat Gait Centre in Prestonpans, on Monday 18th January.   

When asked about the challenge Barbara commented "As a regular swimmer I am more than happy, honestly, to swim a whole mile (in one session - non-stop - gulp gulp!!) in my local swimming pool to support the 1 in 100 campaign"

She added "So if you haven’t already donated to your favourite charity over the festive period please consider my aquatic challenge as worthy of a seasonal kind-hearted gesture."

Barbara's water-based challenge will follow hot on the heels of Campaigns and Fundraising Officer Iain Mitchell's New Year's Day Fancy Dress Dook in the River Forth. For more on Iain's effort click here.
