Four team members swam pier to pier in Bournemouth for The British Heart Foundation

Four of our wonderful artists – Giorgio Pitino, Rob Moore, Laz Mandi and Josh Chappell – successfully finished the annual Bournemouth Pier to Pier Swim on Sunday, raising over £1,000 between them for The British Heart Foundation.

The 1.4-mile swim takes place between Bournemouth pier and Boscombe pier every year and attracts hundreds of participants of all ages and abilities.

Our Outpost team only signed up a month or so ago, so they did really well to post such strong times and finish the swim without the optimum amount of training. Fortunately for them, our office is only a five-minute walk from the beach, so it wasn't too much effort getting down to the ocean for a bit of practice.

We actively encourage our team to pursue a fun, healthy lifestyle, and being so close to Bournemouth beach and natural areas like the New Forest make this really easy.
