Workmates set for 10k river swim
TWO Teign Housing employees are swimming 10 kilometres to raise money for Devon Air Ambulance.
Ian Jones and Josh Lewis are taking on the Openwater Swimming Society's annual River Dart 10k swim on Saturday.
They will set off from the Dart Totnes Rowing Club at Steamer Quay Road, Totnes, and swim down stream finishing at The Ferryboat Inn, Dittisham.
The duo have been training for six months and are ready for what lies ahead.
Ian, 40, is the social housing landlord's business systems manager, and Josh, 27, works as a senior neighbourhood adviser.
Both are keen triathletes and completed the cycling and running aspects of the Six-Month Triathlon in March when they cycled 80 miles and ran seven miles, raising £680 for Sport Relief.
This time they are raising funds for the air ambulance in memory of ex-Teign Housing customer services manager Sue Bowden who died of cancer last year.
