The Great North Swim

Claire Wilcock took part in The Great North Swim on Saturday 13th June 2015, inspired by her late brother-in-law Joseph Carney.

The Joseph Carney Memorial Trust is a St Helens based organisation which aims to help people aged 50 and above who are affected by redundancy and provides help and advice.

Diane Carney, a 47-year-old nurse from Dentons Green created the trust in memory of her husband who died in September 2013 following a battle with depression.

In the St Helens Star on 10th June 2015, Claire explained: “I am so proud of Diane for setting up this charity and would like to raise money to help her with her big hearted project. If I can help just one person and prevent their family from going through the pain that we have suffered following our loss then I would feel an enormous sense of achievement and happy to be contributing proactively to fight against this awful illness.

“Joe was a bit of a daredevil to say the least. he would probably have jumped out of a plane to raise money for charity. I’m too much of a scaredy cat to attempt anything like that so I have chosen to enter The Great North Swim, which is almost as fitting as Joe was also a water baby like me.”

The Great North Swim took place in Lake Windermere and Claire was tackling the one mile course.
