Foodservice design consultant Radford Chancellor is set to swim part of the Thames in a bid to raise money for charity.
Chancellor, who runs London-based Radford Chancellor Limited, will take part in the Great London Swim on May 26th in order to help Hospitality Action.
The one-mile course is set against the London skyline and starts near Canary Wharf in the Borough of Newham.
“I have chosen to swim for Hospitality Action because as the UK’s Hospitality Benevolent Organisation they provide vital assistance to all who work, or have worked within the hospitality industry and who find themselves in crisis,” explains Chancellor. “They provide assistance in a number of ways including helping people with a life altering illness, experiencing poverty, bereavement or escaping domestic violence – they work with all ages including children.”
Chancellor has completed the swim before and hopes to better his time of 59 minutes this time around. “While a mile does not sound a lot, there is a current in the water at the docklands and it is a wetsuit-only event, so I can honestly say it’s no easy challenge!” he says.
