Swim For Logan Thanks
Once again an amazing effort with Ian and Jo for the bbqbarbeque, Jacqui and mum for pasties and cakes and all those who baked, cooked and worked the stalls on the day.
In particular we must mention the amazing cake created by Jenny George based on Logan’s very own pirate designs, she did us proud again!
Registration & Collectors &Volunteers
A big thank you to Kay for faultless registration and Holly and her sister ( CF TRUST ) for help with the timings and of course to Megaphone Man who kept us entertained and informed throughout the day.
A big shout out to Luke Brown of Luke Brown photography who always ( no matter how busy he is ) comes down and takes the most divine photographs of the swimmers to record their stupendous efforts.
Thanks also to Mounts Bay Harriers who always support us with publicity and sponsorship through the SFL hats.
