Our very own Devon Brooks, Nene Outdoors Watersports and Activity Centre manager, is taking on the challenge of swimming six miles at the Serpentine Swim 2023 event!

This is a huge challenge which we are so in awe of Devon for taking on. He is doing this to raise money for Nene Park Trust, the charity which looks after and manages the entire Nene Park, including Ferry Meadows, Orton Mere, Thorpe Meadows and more!

When asked what Nene Park Trust means to him, Devon said:

'Home. I spent my childhood here learning to sail andwindsurf and my first job was on the beach back in 2012. After  some time away I returned in 2016 to work here full time!'

We hope you will join us in supporting Devon by visiting his appeal page, donating and helping to spread the word. You will be giving Devon some much needed motivation to get through the training and the swim itself! 

Swim with Devon

Devon will be doing much of his training in Gunwade Lake at Nene Outdoors, where every Thursday we have open water swimming sessions for the general public. 

Why not come along and join Devon at an open water swimming session? We would love to see you come along and take part in open water swimming, whether you have never done it before or are a regular. Please get in touch with the fundraising team if you want to be at a session when Devon will be there.

Thank you Devon for doing this. We are with you all the way and can't wait to see you do such a great job!
