Whitby Duo help FRANK Water at the Windermere One Way Swim

Whitby team member - SammiiHi! Let me introduce myself. I’m Sammii and I make up one third of the Marketing Team here at Whitby & Co.

Back on Sunday 3rd September, Nick (the Chairman) and I volunteered our time to help FRANK Water serve up refreshments to the swimmers and kayakers taking part in the Windermere One Way Swim at the only on-land food station.

Here’s a little bit about the Windermere One Way Swim - #WOW:

Starting at Fell Foot National Trust, 130 heroic swimmers endured 11 miles of one of the Lake Districts’ infamous lakes – Lake Windermere, finishing at Brathay Hall. Each swimmer had a kayaker with them to provide 1:1 support, protection and guidance throughout the swim.
FRANK Water was the official charity of the Windermere One Way Swim for the 3rd year running.

Swimmers and kayakers stopping by the food stationWith the first lot of swimmers setting off before 7am, Nick and I had to be at the food station, situated at Storrs Hall, for 8am to start food preparation. I don’t think I’ve ever buttered so many slices of bread in my life!! Although the weather was overcast, the water was very calm – ideal for the swimmers.

The first swimmer shot passed us at around 8:45am, not stopping for a refreshments or a break. However, not long after, we were put to work serving hot beverages, sandwiches, bananas, fruit loaf and sweets to anyone you wanted/needed a pick me up.

There was a medic on hand whilst the swimmers and kayakers were stopping to make sure everyone was fit enough to continue and assisting those who were struggling with the cold. The majority of swimmers, however, got back in the water after their refreshment break and continued the enduring swim on to Brathay Manor.

At around 11:30am, all the swimmers had checked in and had refreshments, so we made our way up to Brathay Hall. Unfortunately, by this time the weather had started to change. The rain started to fall and the wind picked up, making Lake Windermere very choppy – not ideal for the swimmers or kayakers. The weather did not deter us or those supporting the swimmers as we cheered them across the finish line – the first one of which completed the swim in an incredible 4 hours 22 minutes and 45 seconds.

The finish lineWe had a great day chatting to and helping those involved in the Windermere One Way Swim and also supporting FRANK Water.

Fancy giving it a go yourself in 2018? Keep an eye on Facebook, Twitter and the WOW website for details.

Paddle Against Plastic - Isle of Skye SUP Expedition

PAP Header 116700402 1654621664834723 1564350300205406765 oPaddle Against Plastic is a platform for highlighting the issues of marine plastic, but more importantly proposing simple solutions, through Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP), adventure, and reconnecting with the environment.

Back on the 24th July, Cal Major, Zoe Satsias and Zoe's dog Skye, set out to circumnavigate the 400 miles of the Isle of Skye's rugged coastline. Although the coastline is stunning and untouched, marine litter was found, including plastic bottles and a traffic cone! This goes to show that no one place is any less vulnerable to the harmful effects of plastic waste in our seas and oceans. 

Whitby & Co supported the team in the expedition by donating the following:

Whitby EDC Range - UK Legal Carry

EDC Knives

See the new range of Every Day Carry UK Legal Pocket Knives with Slipjoint feature.

The Slipjoint is not an actual locking mechanism, however it acts by creating more resistance when the blade is open and therefore does not close as easily as a traditional pocket knife. When extra pressure is applied the blade will fold away.

Whitby’s Team Up with SAS to Clean up the Beaches!

Beach Clean TeamOn Saturday 6th May a team of 15 volunteers from Whitby & Co descended on a Cumbrian Beach to rid it of its litter! This was one of 400+ ‘Big Spring Beach Cleans’ organised in association with Surfers Against Sewage.Beach Clean Beach Bottle

Despite concentrating on a short 300 metre stretch of beach, the team picked up almost 12kg of litter. Items included beer cans, discarded beach toys, cotton buds, tampon applicators, disposable BBQs, wire and even a large battery! And, as is usually the case, the biggest offenders were single use plastic bottles. None of these items should be found discarded on the beach or in the sea – Beach Clean Rubbishsmall items such as cotton buds, can tabs and bottle tops can be ingested by marine life and just imagine the pain that is caused by being tangled up in wire!

Surfers Against Sewage recently reported “Recent surveys have shown that there are almost 160 plastic bottles for every mile of UK shoreline and that plastic pollution is affecting almost every part of our oceans”. Surfers Against Sewage are constantly working to encourage communities to ‘refuse and refill’.

Find out more about the work Surfers Against Sewage do at www.sas.org.uk
