Junior doctor swimming Channel to help spine injury victims

WHAT’S it like to swim the English Channel? A Poole doctor who only started open water swimming last year will find out this summer.

Dr Annie Maggs, of Sherwood Avenue, will join a team of six raising money for the Aspire charity, which helps those with spinal cord injuries. She decided to take up the challenge during a year off following her foundation training.

“I wanted to do a personal challenge during this year and I got the idea after joining East Dorset Open Water Swimming Club,” she said. “Every week it seemed that someone had done a big event like swimming the channel so I thought I’d try that first of all as part of a relay.”
