Summerfield’s Divisional Sales Director Richard Nicol took to the water – his favourite element – for charity on 21 July.
The Burgh Island Swim took place at Bigbury-on-Sea in South Devon on a beautiful summer evening and was organised by law firm Ashfords LLP. Now in its second year, Richard was one of more than 75 enthusiastic participants who enjoyed perfect, calm conditions for the one-mile swim in open water around the beauty spot.
Replacing the calories burnt off in the race, the swimmers enjoyed the beer and pasties offered by Ashfords afterwards.
Money raised from the swim will go to the event’s three selected charities: Parkinson’s UK, Exeter City FC Football in the Community and Surf Life Saving GB.
