Wild Swimmers make contact…

I’ve just received this message from Matthew Jones, who together with Heather Letley have so far raised £270 for their charity swim in aid of Llyndy Isaf on their justgiving site.

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.

A huge thanks on behalf of the National Trust to Matt and Heather – hope to see you when you next take a dip at Llyn  Dinas.
