Spalshing effort

By James Hickman

23 August 2008

The Hatch team are pleased to announce that our client, James Whittaker, has raised £150,000 for The New Children’s Hospital Appeal.

James, development director at our client Peel, didn’t just raise this cash by wearing fancy dress or doing the rounds in pubs with a bucket, no, he took it a little further.

He decided to swim the entire length of the Manchester Ship Canal. That’s a massive 36 miles! A bit like swimming all the way to visit our European cousins in France and back again!

Details of how he completed the world first can be found here.

Hats off to James a massive achievement I think you will all agree.
