  • Housing swim team in charity cheque handover

    This week Incommunities Group Chief Executive, Geraldine Howley and Assistant Chief Executive, Adrienne Reid were delighted to handover a cheque for £1560 to Chartered Institute of Housing President, Jim Strang after completing a big swim challenge.

    The tidy sum is going to Women’s Aid, the President’s nominated charity.

    Geraldine and Adrienne were joined by executive management team colleague Greg Robinson and Mark Crane from the group’s Building Service in a fundraising swim at Lake Windermere as part of the Great North Swim (9th June).

    Geraldine Howley said:  “We are delighted to make this contribution towards the vital work of Women’s Aid and support their commitment to ending domestic abuse. Knowing we were raising money for such a worthwhile cause gave us that extra motivation to take on the chilly waters of Lake Windermere and do it!

    “A big thank you to staff, housing partners and businesses who have supported our swim challenge.”

    In previous years Geraldine and her swim team have taken the water to support the Prince’s Trust and homelessness charity, Crisis.
