For the last 12 months John O’Brien, LCMB Founder and MD has been working with Nigel Smith, Careers lead and the team at The Warriner School, in Bloxham, Oxfordshire as their Enterprise Advisor to help the school prepare their students for careers and life after school.
Earlier this year he decided to swim the 51/4 mile, end to end, of Lake Coniston in Lake District swim to help raise sponsorship for events to inspire and prepare today’s youth for tomorrow’s world of work at the school.
John safely completed the swim on Saturday 2nd September in 3 hours 20 mins.
John is within £40 of his £1,000 sponsorship target for the school and if you would like to help you can still sponsor him via this link https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/john-obrien
John says “I’ve been amazed at what the Warriner team achieve on a very tight budget and this budget is getting tighter due to reduced funding for all schools over the coming years. For this reason I’ve decided to support the school by swimming Lake Coniston. This was a real personal challenge for me, as two years ago I could not swim a length of our local pool. I would like to thank everyone who has sponsored me, your money will make a big difference to the students at The Warriner School”.
