Weather permitting, Rosanna Hill will today dive in to Lake Windermere aiming to complete a one mile swim in it’s cold, murky dark waters. This will be Rosanna’s first open water swimming experience – she’s really throwing herself in the deep end, quite literally!
With this challenge Rosanna is opening up a new area of focus for The Sue Moreton Foundation in the area of bereavement support. We will work with local health professionals to provide families who have sadly lost a baby either in pregnancy/labour or after the birth, with keepsakes and memory boxes. We will also be sponsoring a study day for professionals in North Wales in September – more details to follow soon.
All of the money Rosanna raises for this swim will go directly to support these initiatives, for this is a topic close to Rosanna’s heart. In her own words:
On Christmas morning we received the sad news that our friends Jess and Ian’s baby boy Oliver was stillborn. With Jess and Ian in our thoughts and in memory of baby Oliver, we hope to help those in a similar situation, particularly by improving the memory boxes and providing keepsakes for parents.
Best of luck to Rosanna in her swim!! Please sponsor here via this link:
