Despite water temperatures of 15 degrees we all managed to complete the swim and Anne, Luke and Jamie didn't wear wetsuits! 

Thank you so much to everyone who supported and donated - we are so grateful and every pound spurred us on! Its not too late to give now! 


Swim the Serpentine? A bad joke has become reality for 10 slightly crazy swimmers. Please help our pain by giving a tenner to Horatio's Garden!

Our team is made up of Horatio's mother and chair of charity Olivia, garden volunteers Annabel Ward and Kuki Rauh, supporters Claire Birch, Anne Macalpine-Leny, Will Bray, Luke Birch, Jamie Mcalpine-Leny, Lucy Williams, Kevin Franks and Horatio's friend Louise Watts with Grace Sanderson. 

Every pound you can spare will help Horatio's Garden to create more beautiful garden projects in the heart of the NHS - transforming spinal injury centres for patients, their families and friends. 

Horatio loved swimming and I know he will be with us every stroke through the cold Serpentine waters. 

Thank you so much for giving - you will help our efforts enormously!
