Arcadia Library & Leisure Centre customer Sam Edwards had a target to swim 22 miles for Diabetes UK in honour of her father in March 2020. However, by the time the country went into lockdown, Sam had only completed 11 miles at Arcadia Leisure Centre. During Lockdown she swam 1 mile in open water and has since completed the remaining 10 miles at  Arcadia Library and Leisure Centre since we have re-opened.

Sam’s mother wanted to come and watch her finish her swim but was unable to do so due to covid restrictions and to stay safe. Therefore, the team at Arcadia were there to support her and congratulated her with a bottle of bubbly for when she finished.

What a great achievement for a great cause Sam and we are delighted to be a part of it.
