Margaret Lawther, Treasurer of the ABM National and Sydney Auxiliaries and long-time supporter, undertook a 2.5km swim in October 2015 to fundraise for charity. She shares her story with us:

"On a beautiful crisp morning at 6.00am on the 21st October, I set off to swim 50 laps of the 50 metre pool at Enfield in Sydney. This was to raise money for two charities - the Anglican Board of Mission and Kidney Health Australia.

"As at 10th November $1,700 was raised to be divided 75% to ABM and 25% to Kidney Health. All went well but the last three laps were tough and when I got out, I had to sit down for a while, either that or fall down!!"

Margaret has since recovered and is thinking of doing this as an annual event.

What a wonderful effort Margaret! Thank you for your support and we hope you will inspire others to do their bit for mission.
