The 28th annual City Dip took place on Friday 1st June at Golden Lane Sport & Fitness in Barbican. Several teams and individuals from the City took part in the 5,000 metre swimming challenge over the course of the day. The Lady Mayoress also took part and completed her incredible 5-hour challenge swimming tirelessly from 2pm to 7pm completing a whopping 562 lengths. 10 people mostly from livery companies showed their support by swimming with her for half an hour each and a strong group of enthusiastic supporters was present on the poolside all afternoon to cheer the swimmers and keep them going with homemade baked goodies and upbeat music.
The Lady Mayoress’ fundraising page is still live and open for donations at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/samantha-bowman7. If you haven’t yet sponsored her it is not too late to do so now! All donations, however small, will be received with immense gratitude.
The Lord Mayor's Appeal would like to express their sincere thank yous to the team at Golden Lane Sport & Fitness for organising the event and to everyone who took part or has sponsored the Lady Mayoress.
