Making a splash for animal welfare charity
10:48am Wednesday 11th September 2013 in News
TV VET Emma Milne and staff from Lady Lumley’s School in Pickering before their 300-length swim, a total of 7.5km (about four and a half miles), in Ryedale Pool in Pickering.
The swim raised money for the Animal Welfare Foundation (AWF) in its 30th anniversary year.
The investigative journalist Donal McIntyre was scheduled to take part but was held up abroad.
Emma said: “Since deciding to do the swim it’s become quite a thing and I’m really proud of everyone who has joined in.
‘‘This year is the AWF’s 30th anniversary and we desperately need more awareness of its work but also, of course, money to continue making a real impact on the welfare of thousands of animals in the UK.”
