Jamie Farquhar conquers Lake Windermere
Jamie Farquhar, business development director at Square Mile Investment Consulting and Research, has completed a 34km swim – over 21 miles – up and down Lake Windermere and has raised over £10,000. Battling through the cold lake water, he set out at 5am to swim from the northern end of the lake to the south, before turning around and swimming back. In all, the challenge took him 14 hours and 34 minutes of non-stop swimming to complete.
He said: To be honest, the swim was brutal and towards the end I don’t think I have ever been so physically, mentally and emotionally shattered but it was all worth it to help GOSH.
