The Southend Sharks

Saturday, 21 September 2013

Jonathon Livemore from the British relay team 'The Southend Sharks' has been interviewed by his local radio station along with our CSA secretary Dr Julie Bradshaw MBE. Have a listen to a recording of it here. Jonathon and his team are currently waiting to swim the Channel at the moment and are raising money for cystitic fibrosis in the process. It was touching to hear that they will be placing flowers in the sea a mile from France where Susan Taylor collapsed in her memory.

We wish The Southend Sharks the best of luck for their swim.....
