Team story

[p]Hello[/p][p]I met Helen last year when I started working with Cambridgeshire Mencap to produce their marketing materials. My colleague Darren ran the 2010 London Marathon on behalf of CM so now it's my turn for a challenge. Helen had already signed up for the (British Gas) Great East swim so I decided to join her – we both agreed to do the swim on behalf of Cambridgeshire Mencap as it would be another great opportunity to raise money for them. CM are a great local charity offering help and support to people (and families of people) with learning difficulties.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]The Great East swim is basically a mile long swim in Alton Water near Ipswich, the event is on 19 June. It will be cold and probably a bit scary so please sponsor us for our efforts (just getting in a wetsuit has to be worth a few pounds!) – it's for such a great cause.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]Many thanks[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]Liz & Helen[/p][p]PS we're not sure who the young chap is draped over Helen, he seemed to want to be in the shot![/p]
