Not only was Clare’s story picked up by Sport Relief themselves to be used in publicity material for the event, but this then led to her receiving an invitation to the Prime Minister’s Sport Relief reception at 10 Downing Street alongside celebrities such as Davina McCall, Jo Wiley as well as other Sport Relief participants.
Clare, along with her husband Simon, completed the Swimathon at Truro Leisure Centre on Saturday 22nd March. The swim covered 2.5Km (100 lengths!) and together Clare and Simon raised a magnificent total of over £900 for Sport Relief.
Clare commented: “I have been very lucky in being sponsored by friends, family, work colleagues and clients who have all been very generous in their support.
“Attending the Downing Street reception was amazing and I am glad I have been able to raise a little bit towards such a good charity which helps so many causes.”
