Two fabulous sisters, Ellie and Gwen-O will be travelling 1100 miles, swimming in 3 freezing lakes in 3 different countries and all over a 24-hour period! Why are they doing this? Because the mental health service Ellie manages has used the Bright charities Star Wards programme to make huge improvements in the mental health care offered to the people of Grimsby. Ellie works for an award-winning organisation, NAViGO Healthcare and is a trustee on the Bright Board. And yes - she can swim!

Star Wards is much loved by staff and patients who, like Ellie, have used it to transform care. The money raised will be used to improve life for people on inpatients wards both staff and patients.

The challenge.

The star sisters will be taking on three beautiful lakes in three countries:

In England they will swim the Hatfields Open Water Lake near Doncaster. Then a drive to the picturesque glacier formed Welsh Lake of Llyn Padarn in Snowdonia. The third and final lake will the historic much sung about Loch Lomond in the Trossachs National Park.
