Tony Sambridge, Business Development Director, Combined Energy Solutions has recently completed a 5 kilometre swim for Macmillan Cancer Support.
His training began in March and he completed the swim on the 1st July 2017.
Tony said, “I started training in my local indoor pool two nights a week until one cold day in March I braved the Royal Victoria Dock open water to start my open water training. The water was 9°c and I only managed 750 metres! I returned every Saturday over the next few weeks and managed to increase my distance, slowly getting closer to my 5 kilometre target.”
There were 2000 other swimmers taking part, completing various distances from 800 meters to 10 kilometres. Tony managed to finish his swim in 1 hour and 32 minutes, spurred on by his family waiting for him at the finish line!
Tony is delighted to have raised £2320 for Macmillan Cancer Trust. You can still support Tony and donate through his JustGiving page- https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/tony-sambridge
