Zen Internet Swimmers Raise Money

A team of employees from Rochdale based Zen Internet took part in the Great Manchester Swim in Salford Quays on Saturday 20th July.

The team of employees swam the one mile outdoor swim staged in Salford Quays, to raise money for Zen’s chosen charity, Kingfisher Community Special School. This unique ‘dock to dock’ course is an unforgettable experience in the open water. The course begins in Dock 9 near The Lowry and MediaCityUK, traverses Mariners Canal and finishes one mile away at Dock 8 beside Salford Watersports Centre.

The Kingfisher Community Special School is Oldham’s provision for primary aged children with severe and complex learning needs. Kingfisher ensures that the children receive the very best possible learning opportunities. The school strives to ensure that this happens through robust yet creative and innovative practice.

Already this year Zen employees have completed the Great Manchester Run and a Coast to Coast Cycle challenge from the Esplanade in Morecambe on the Lancashire coast, to the Central Pier at Scarborough on the east coast, a total of 132 miles.

“This is the third event Zen employees have taken part in so far this year, bringing the total raised for the Great Manchester Run and the Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge to nearly £8,000. The charity events are a great chance for everyone to get involved, whether they are actually running, cycling or swimming or simply donating online, with all proceeds going to Kingfisher, said Caroline Taylor, HR Director.

Zen raised over £9,000 for last year’s charity, Boomerang, the multi-sensory play centre in Bury. Zen is hoping to match or exceed this amount in 2013 for Kingfisher.
