Hero in Park Pool

During the hot weather today Christopher Bodell, who works at Brighter Futures and who is supported by staff from Linkability (West Lancs) was swimming. Whilst swimming with his staff member Edward McCarthy, Christopher helped a struggling young swimmer in Ormskirk’s Park Pool.

Christopher said ‘I saw the boy struggling in the middle of the pool so I helped him to return to safety, with the aid of a green float which I got for him.”

Edward McCarthy said: “We were swimming in the middle of the pool and the young boy who was having a lesson managed to end up struggling. Christopher who is always very considerate gave the boy a float, the pool staff were close to hand and Christopher’s kind act was typical of his attitude. Park Pool is a great place to swim in the summer and we both encourage children to go and swim and take lessons from the excellent swimming teachers there. We had a well deserved ice cream after all the drama. Well done Christopher!”
