Hannah takes the plunge for Cystic Fibrosis Trust
June 27, 2012
A keen fundraiser for charity has tackled the Thames, completed a ‘grim’ run, and will soon be getting on her bike for a good cause.
Watersports instructor Hannah Daborn had to have help with her swimming cap when she joined 5,000 charity supporters to enter the murky waters of the River Thames.
Hannah, 23, who teaches windsurfing and sailing at Horseshoe Lake Activity Centre, Mill Lane, Sandhurst, swam a mile from the Royal Victoria Dock, London, on Saturday, May 26, in 48 minutes as part of the Great London Swim.
She said: “I chose to support the Cystic Fibrosis Trust because the child of a close family friend died when she was young.
“I decided to sign up for a bit of fun but I haven’t done much swimming before and when I turned up I hadn’t done much training.
“Four people had to help me get my swimming cap on because I have such big curly hair.”
Hannah is no stranger to charity fundraising and undertook a gruelling eight-and-a-half-mile run, ‘Grim Challenge’, last month.
Also, as an activities volunteer at Ravenswood Village, Crowthorne, she is planning to cycle from London to Brighton on Sunday, July 1, to raise funds for care provider Norwood which supports people with learning difficulties.
