SWIMMING FOR FAMILY SUPPORT!
Occupational Therapist Maggie Cowan will attempt a one mile open water swim challenge at the Great Scottish Swim taking place at Loch Lomond on 24 August. Stirling Family Support are delighted that Maggie plans to donate all sponsorship to the service.
Said Maggie “My Mother Anne is the Family Support Development Worker there and I know the funding situation is difficult. My Mum is very passionate about her work and I feel the staff always go the extra mile to support the families they work with. There is not much support for people affected by a loved one’s substance misuse, particularly Kinship Carers. Stirling Family Support Service need all the financial support they can get to allow them to carry on with their magnificent work. I would like to do my bit to support both the service and My Mum.
I’m a bit nervous, because, although I swam in competition etc. when I was younger, I’ve never swam in open water. Hopefully I’ll get there! It’s for such a worthy cause.”
