We are very grateful to Leo (year 11 Lapwing student) who has kindly raised money for Lapwing through completion of the Great East Swim which took place on 22nd June 2019 at Alton Water. Leo wrote about the experience here.

We are also indebted to Rob Edwards of Long Melford, Suffolk who is competing in The London Triathlon on 27 Jul 2019 and has chosen to raise money for Lapwing having been inspired by our work. Many thanks Rob and we wish you all the best! Click here to donate.
