On Saturday, 10 September 2022, Anne-Marie Renshaw undertook a fantastic 10km fundraising swim, without a wetsuit, at Shepperton Lake for The Friends of Teddington Memorial Hospital in memory of her Mum, Anne Rae. Please support Anne-Marie with a generous donation. To date, she has raised a brilliant £1,060! Congratulations, Anne, what an amazing swim! And a big thank-you to all her generous supporters.
Help to keep providing great care
Anne-Marie’s JustGiving page is still open. She is fundraising for The Friends of Teddington Memorial Hospital so that the hospital can continue to provide the services our community needs.
Her Mum was in the hospital for the last few weeks of her life, and the NHS teams working there were wonderful. Anne-Marie would like to be able to thank them with vital funds to enable them to keep providing such great care.
Amazing 10km swim
Anne-Marie swam 10km in Shepperton Lake without a wetsuit (which was her first ever non-wetsuit marathon swim) with her lovely friend Marit to raise money for this amazing hospital who were so wonderful in looking after her Mum in the last few weeks of her life.
Her Mum loved to swim, so what better way to remember her?
The lake is 750m (ish) around, she swam approximately 13 laps (with a bit extra at the end) to complete the challenge. Congratulations on your 10km fundraising swim.

Why fundraise for The Friends?
Over the last 20 years, the Friends has mounted successful fundraising appeals and raised over £8m through the generosity of the Teddington community. This has enabled us to deliver many improvements that would not have been possible otherwise.
The NHS provides an appropriate baseline level of funding for the hospital. However, supporting The Friends offers local people, organisations, and businesses the opportunity to contribute to valuable additions.
The most recent example is opening a second paediatric audiology screening room. This will help 800 more local children a year to get the care they need quickly.
