Country Grounds Maintenance Marketing Executive Abigail Garrod has been raising money for Diabetes UK through the Swim22 fundraising campaign.
Abigail and her mum Debbie Rawson have recently completed their three month challenge and successfully swam a total of 22 miles each – the equivalent of the English Channel.
The campaign is close to their hearts as Abigail’s partner has been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes since the age of six.
Abigail said: “Our main aim was to increase awareness of this condition and how much it affects sufferers everyday life. We are extremely proud that we have completed the challenge and our sponsorship money will go towards finding a cure for this lifelong condition.”
Debbie added: “It was more of a commitment than we first thought but we are both pleased that we signed up for it and have now completed it.”
CGM is a company that is always looking to support both local and national charities and always encourages their employees to take part in charity work.
