Laura's story - Raised hundreds of pounds for charity

I’m a swimming teacher for Places Leisure and teach at Steyning Leisure centre. I started swimming about five/six years ago and it has absolutely changed my life. Since I started my swimming journey I’ve raised hundreds of pounds for charity, have become an ambassador for Swimathon where I’ve had the opportunity to swim with Duncan Goodhew and I qualified as a swimming teacher! It is the most rewarding job in the world, and I owe so much to the sport. I am now living a much happier and healthier lifestyle as a direct result from swimming and I just love being able to share that with others.
