Corinne’s Story

“At times when the weather was cold it was a struggle, but we’ve been driven on by the fantastic support we’ve received from family and friends”

Advanced respiratory nurse Corinne, her patient Lynn, who has severe asthma, and Lynn’s daughter Indy raised over £3,000 through jumping in to cold waters of Lochs and rivers every day for a month. The trio wanted to do something to help raise money for vital research and important support for people with lung conditions.
