Jon to face 10km Lake Windermere swim to raise money for The Family Haven
On the 12th of June, our enthusiastic and dedicated financial adviser, Jonathan Bissett will swim 10km through the cold waters of Lake Windermere to raise money for the Family Haven. Jonathan has been training for months in all weathers, braving cold lakes and freezing temperatures to ensure he is well prepared for the task ahead.
Jonathan has got to know the Family Haven through his work as a financial adviser. Since the start of the year, Prosser Knowles has been a corporate sponsor of the charity and he has got to know the people that work there and learned more about the valuable work they do.
The Family Haven helps vulnerable families in the Gloucestershire area. The families are often homeless or living in unsuitable accommodation or stuck in the poverty loop. The charity provides a day centre where there is a registered nursery which offers nursery education, respite and crèche facilities. They also provide laundry and bathing facilities, hot midday meals, parenting classes and provides mutual support and buddying to fight isolation. The work they do is key to making family’s lives and the lives of children better.
