In a week’s time, Somerville Chairman, Andrew Cross, will be taking part in the ‘Dart 10K’ swimming challenge, to raise money for the charity Crohn’s and Colitis UK. This is a swim organised by the Outdoor Swimming Society and runs down the River Dart from Totnes to Dittisham – a distance indeed of 10km or 6.25 miles in old money.
Andrew says, “Some of you will know that I do a bit of wild swimming but this is way off the scale for me. The water will be cold which will drain energy quite apart from the distance involved. So it is a bit of a journey into the unknown – rather like taking part in a marathon. I hope to be able to do it in 3.5 to 4 hours. I felt that I should try and let someone benefit from the challenge and have decided to support Crohn’s and Colitis UK“
