Brenda takes on New Years Day Dip in aid of Charity

Brenda Virgin, secretary in our private client department at Maitland Walker solicitors,  recently started swimming in the sea at Minehead Beach (for fun) with a local group called The Polar Bears.  Day to day Brenda usually finds herself assisting the solicitors with wills and probate but has found her new found love of sea swimming to be quite exhilarating and addictive - although we are unsure if she is swayed by the homemade cake that is supplied at the end of her swims!

Brenda has bravely signed up to take part in the New Year’s Day Charity Dip in aid of St Margarets Hospice and plans to go into the sea in just her swimming costume, rather than  a wetsuit on the day.  Brenda is taking part in the swim in memory of her late mum, Brenda commented “She died of mesothelioma (asbestosis), and spent some time at St. Margarets Hospice in Taunton.  The lovely staff looked after her with amazing tenderness, empathy and compassion.  This is a tiny bit of payback in recognition of the brilliant work that they do.  It would be great to see plenty of people supporting on the day.”

The dip starts at 3pm on New Year’s Day 2022 and Brenda would greatly appreciate any support on the day or by donation to the cause via  https://www.justgiving.com/Brennievirgx
