Housing colleagues complete Scottish swim for charity

Two Sadeh Lok staff have raised £370 for charity after taking part in the Great Scottish Swim.

Cath Flooks and Jane Ashcroft  swapped the office for the great outdoors last weekend to brave the icy waters of Loch Lomond and support the Alzheimer’s Society.

The intrepid pair completed the one-mile course in one hour 21 minutes beating the time they achieved in last year’s Great North Swim.

The Alzheimer’s Society is a charity close to Cath and Jane’s heart. It is also a cause their colleagues at the housing group have supported with dementia friendly training to help them better support customers and carers.

The Huddersfield-based Sadeh Lok housing association is part of the Incommunities Group.

Cath said: "A big thank you to everyone at Sadeh Lok, Incommunities, housing partners and family and friends for their donations and support.

"It was tough going battling the currents to keep on course and the many hours of training in local baths and on open water really helped us."

Jane added: "Knowing we were doing the swim for such a great cause was a big motivation for us. We are very proud of what we’ve achieved."

Hussain Brook, Sadeh Lok’s Head of Service added: "Cath and Jane really work hard helping our customers and it is a credit to them both that they gave up their Bank Holiday weekend to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society. Well done."

Their 2016 Great North Swim was in aid of mental health charity, Mind and in 2018 Cath has pencilled in plans to take part in the Great East Swim.
