redheadPR help raise over £1,000 for bomb disposal charity

redheadPR was proud to be one of the sponsors of The Victory Swim, a fantastic one-day event, which raised £1094 for the Felix Fund, a charity supporting bomb disposal personnel and their families. The event saw participants of all ages and abilities experience an exciting open-water swim in the glorious Cotswolds Lake near Cirencester.

As well as providing £250 of sponsorship money, founder and managing director of redheadPR, Sara Tye, also took part in the event, which took place on Thursday 6 September 2018.
During the event, entrants were able to swim with Jack Cummings, a double-amputee war veteran who is an Invictus Games medal winner.

As well as being founder and managing director of redheadPR, Sara is also an award-winning entrepreneur, a business and organisational expert, a keen triathlete and chair of Swindon Triathlon Club. 

Sara said, "On a personal level, I love being involved in sporting events. This year alone, I’ve taken part in the Clevedon Long Swim, The Great North Swim 5K, a middle distance 70.3 triathlon in Exmoor, the Swindon Half Marathon, the Dursley Dozen, and the Tri Ferris Cotswold Sprint Triathlon….to name but a few.”

Sara goes on to say “The Victory Swim is a brilliant example of how sport can inspire people, and change lives. In terms of redheadPR, we love to give back to the community and sponsor events and initiatives that we think are particularly worthwhile. We hope that our involvement will encourage other companies to come forward and support this extremely worthwhile event."

Swimming success clearly runs in the family at redheadPR, as Sara’s two daughters also took part in The Victory Swim. Samantha, aged 12 swam 1,500 meters in the lake, whilst Amelia, aged 11 swam 750 meters. Samantha, is also an ambassador for HUP
™ Children's CyclingChildren's Cycling.

Sara and Samantha also took part in this year's Swim Serpentine on Saturday 22 September 2018. Together they both swam half a mile. This well-known open-water swimming event is held in Hyde Park in the beautiful Serpentine, the same stretch of water that was used for outdoor swimming races during the 2012 London Olympics. This year, Sara has already completed the Pier to Pier Bournemouth open-water swimming event, swimming 1.4 miles between Bournemouth Pier and Boscombe Pier.

The 2019 Victory Swim promises to be particularly special, with advanced swimmers having the opportunity to attempt a Channel swim, either solo or as part of a relay team. If you are interested in swimming or sponsoring the event, please contact pr@redheadPR for more information.
