Former nurse in swimathon fundraiser for Musgrove wards - 16 April 2019

Former nurse in swimathon fundraiser for Musgrove wards - 16 April 2019

A retired Musgrove Park nurse returned to her former ward to hand over funds raised from a swimming challenge.

Sue Potticary started taking swimming lessons after retiring as a staff nurse from Fielding Ward almost five years ago.

And after taking part in her first ever swim-marathon – completing 64 lengths at 1610 Bridgwater – she raised £275 for Fielding Ward and another £275 for Acorn Ward children’s ward.

Sue returned to see her former colleagues on Tuesday (16 April) and handed over her donation to Fielding Ward sister Abbie Bennett.

Sue said: “I felt I wanted to do something useful, and having learned to swim I thought I’d do a swim-marathon – it was something I never thought I’d do, but now I’m thinking of doing another.”
