A Wish From John

18 October 2023

We coordinated a visit for John to a nearby leisure centre in Christchurch for a much-anticipated swim.

John had been longing to return to swimming for quite some time, and his happiness was palpable as he headed back to the pool. During his visit, John swam for a remarkable 45 minutes, managing to complete two lengths of the pool.

After this invigorating swim, Denise and John savoured a relaxing coffee at the centre’s café. John shared how much this experience meant to him, getting back into the water. We’ve now set plans for this to become a regular weekly activity for John, with swimming sessions scheduled every Tuesday morning!
