Swimming Success

An evening swim at Llyn Dinas

The appeal fund received a boost last week when £250 arrived at our office following  a charity swim on the Thames.

Heather Letley and Matthew Jones completed the 2.25 mile swim two weeks ago.

They were inspired to help the appeal, having enjoyed many swimming trips to Llyn Dinas.

I notice that they are still receiving donations on their justgiving site – so there’s still time to help!

We’d love to hear more about the event, so Heather and Matthew, if you see this, please leave a comment to let us know how it went.

A big “Diolch yn Fawr” (thank you) to you both…



  1. To Richard and all the supporters of the Llyndy campaign,

    Many thanks for featuring our sponsored Thames swim on the blog. We’re very glad that we were able to contribute to such a worthy cause.The 2.25m swim itself wasn’t too bad; the water was quite warm, but a bit oily – nowhere near as pleasant as swimming in the lakes of Snowdonia! Still, it was an unusual opportunity and well worth it. We did get some strange looks (as well as a few cheers) from walkers and joggers on the riverbank though…

    Best of luck with the rest of the appeal.

    • Wonderful to hear from you Matt! Thank you on behalf of the Trust and all the other supporters for your imaginative and generous fundraising event! Hope to meet you sometime when you’re next taking a dip in Llyn Dinas!
