TEDDINGTON, U.K. - Sept. 13, 2022 - PRLog -- Open-water swimmer Anne-Marie raised a tremendous £1,060 for The Friends of TMH so that the hospital can continue to provide vital services the community needs.

Anne-Marie swam 10km in Shepperton Lake without a wetsuit (her first ever non-wetsuit marathon swim) to raise money for this great hospital. The lake is 750m around, so Anne-Marie, and good friend Marit, swam approximately 13 laps (with a bit extra at the end) to complete the challenge – getting out regularly for jam sandwiches and non-lake water.

Anne-Marie said: "Mum was in Teddington Memorial Hospital for the last few weeks of her life and the NHS teams working there were wonderful with her.  I want to be able to thank them with vital funds to enable them to keep providing such great care. Mum loved to swim, so what better way to remember her."

The Friends of TMH has funded several improvements at the hospital through community donations and fundraising, including providing a new paediatric audiology suite, the complete refurbishment of the Urgent Treatment Centre reception area and new radiology equipment.
