For­mer teacher makes a splash for cash

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your News -

On Sun­day, for­mer head of maths and for­mer housemistress from Oun­dle School, Ni­cola Guise, suc­cess­fully com­pleted the Brown sea Is­land swim in just un­der three hours, rais­ing more than £3,000 for char­ity.

Ni cola com­mit­ted to the four mile spon­sored swim (with­out a wet­suit!) around Brownsea Is­land, to raise money for the work of In­ter­na­tional Needs in sup­port­ing street chil­dren in the Kawang­ware slums of Nairobi, Kenya.

Ni­cola com­mented: “I made it. The con­di­tions were rather choppy and chilly. It was a re­lief to get to the point where wind and tide were in the same di­rec­tion help­ing me to fin­ish.

“It feels great to have raised over £3000 for the Kenyan street boy project - but I’m not in a hurry to do it again!”
