The brave soul in this video is Nick Sutton and he will be doing the Salford Swim (SMile) on August 5th 2018 at Salford Quays to raise much needed cash on behalf of Pod and Pig.
Nick and his wife have been friends with Jorgie and Pete for many years. Following the gutting news of Pete’s death earlier this year, Nick decided he wanted to honour his mate with a serious challenge so elected to do something that he was truly crap at!
Since Nick only learned to swim properly in March this one mile, open water swim is certainly going to challenge him with every stroke. We salute this swimming superstar and wish him all the very best of luck with his challenge.
Big love from all at Pod and Pig
Following a last minute cancellation of the Salford Quays event, Nick thought he’d up the ante a little by signing up for a 1.5k swim in Lake Windermere instead. And here’s the evidence of his superb effort on the 26th August. Well done Nick! And you did it all front crawl with no armbands too. Great work young man!
