Now that the swim attempt is over, and life returns to normal at home and at work, it is nothing short of heart warming to discover the full extent of the support I was receiving from work colleagues at Dovetail whilst I was in the Channel.
It transpires that I was solely responsible for the lack of productivity on Wednesday 20th August, as staff in the UK and US were glued to the tracker, watching my swim progress.
In the US office, they had their own, somewhat-less-technical progress chart, as can be seen from the top photo.
The fact that I exceeded my target of £10,000 for Acorns was seen as the major achievement, and staff in the UK office gathered for a congratulatory photo.
I work with some incredible people. It makes me proud to be one of them.
