Swapping the Pool for the Sea!
On Sunday 15th September Laura took part in the Devon Air Ambulance Trust Sea Swim at Broadsands, Paignton. She swam with
Andrea Downing who started lessons at Aqua Stars earlier this year. After a few lessons Andrea heard about the sea swim and set
herself the challenge of taking part. Despite being a cold and wet day, the sea was warm and we completed the swim. Andrea raised
over £1000 through sponsorship and a cake sale. We also had a collection here in our coffee bar and raised £100 so thank you to all
who supported us!
