Story

5 guys, 1 lake. 


We are swimming across Lake Geneva this Summer for the Welsh Guards Charity, of which Ed is a serving soldier.


 Ed Scott-Bowden, Tom Harding, Will Mogoseanu, Henry Quinlan and Ben Palmer are taking part in the Lake Geneva Classic! This is a 13km swim across the longest section of the iconic lake and will be our first taste of long-distance swimming. With the promise of ice-cold beers on the finish line, we all signed up to the challenge in December with lofty plans for hardcore training schedules and effectively becoming fish by the time July rolled around. Busy lives have prevented us from growing gills but we are now in the heart of the swimming season so the training is ramping up and regular trips to London’s lakes and lido’s are the norm. 

Ed is a serving soldier in the Welsh Guards and introduced us to their charity who are working tirelessly to support the families and ex-service men & women. From offering life-changing assistance for injured soldiers to providing family support to those who have lost loved ones, the charity is changing lives and is one that we are all very keen to support.


Please donate whatever you can and we will see you on the other side!


Thanks, 


Ed, Tom, Will, Henry & Ben
