Great North Swim 24th. June 2012

Nick and Megan were both successful in their one mile swim around Low Wood Bay, Windermere
as part of the Great North Swim.

Other paddlers, Rowena and Barbara, unfortunately had their swim cancelled
due to the extreme weather of heavy rain and high winds.

Sue is enjoying every minute.
A much deserved honour!

Paddlers for Life accompany the Olympic Torch as it is carried
on the Tern into Bowness-on-Windermere
. Thursday 21st. July

Artemis Diana and Artemis Phyllis were paddled by a mixed crew of Paddlers for Life cancer survivors, supporters and NHS staff from Low Wood to Bowness to meet and accompany the Tern as it carried the Olympic Torch across Windermere. On a misty and atmospheric evening paddlers were in great spirits as we approached the crowds awaiting the torch arrival. Paddlers for Life are awarded the Olympic 'Inspire' mark.
