Issue 308 – Laura swims in chilly Lake Windermere for Dorothy House

A member of staff from Top Banana Team in Frome is taking a dip in Lake Windermere to raise money for Dorothy House.

Laura Harrison who works as a programme manager at the communications, events and marketing company based in Commerce Park on the outskirts of Frome, is joining thousands of others in the Great North Swim on Sunday, 5th September.
The Great North Swim is a one-mile route in Lake Windermere in Cumbria which, despite settling in Bath, is where Laura grew up.
Laura Harrison said, “It is the third time that I have taken part in the Great North Swim and it is always nice to return home for the event because my friends and family are able to come along.
“Although I do know what to expect, I still get very nervous because the water is very cold and nothing can really prepare you for that. Fortunately, I will be wearing a wetsuit!
“I am delighted to be raising money for Dorothy House this year because it is Top Banana Team’s charity of the year, and so over the next 12 months we will be joining in a number of fundraising events, including the Midnight Walk on 11th September.”
Phillippa Watson, corporate & events fundraiser for Dorothy House said, “We’re delighted that Laura has signed up to take part in the Great North Swim in aid of Dorothy House and we wish her all the best.”
