Emma Jeffrey swims with Sharks!

Fourteen year old, Lytham St Anne’s High School student, Emma Jeffrey, raised £120 for Fylde Sharks, when she swam with Real Sharks recently. Emma is a keen supporter and a regular volunteer with our club and bravely decided to swim with real sharks to raise funds for us.

She came out of the challenge unscathed and said, “It was one of the best experiences of my life. It was so exciting when the sharks were swimming right past me. I am so glad that I decided to ask people to sponsor me to do it for Fylde Sharks. It is an amazing organization, they do so much for children with disabilities and their families.”

Emma has a cousin who suffers from severe autism and life can be very demanding for him and his family. She continued, ” My cousin swims with the group and has gained a lot from the experience. I am happy that I can finally thank the group and give something back.”

Christine Miller, Chair of Fylde Sharks said, “It is fantastic when a young person gives up their time to help other less fortunate than themselves. The club are delighted that Emma raised this much needed funding for the club and wish her well for the future.”
