Bishop Fleming swims the Channel

On 27 September a team of five colleagues from Bishop Fleming swam the English Channel in a team relay, crossing some of the busiest shipping lanes in the world in aid of two charities; Level Water and Prostate Cancer UK. Supported by pilot boat the ‘Viking Princess’ and with a small support crew, the team swam in one-hour rotations throughout the night, finishing on the French coast at Wissant beach after 13 hours 32 minutes.


Calling themselves ‘Fish at Fleming’, the team consisted of Alison Dale, Andrew Yearsley, Nick Foley, May Argyle and Richard Willimott, all of whom are colleagues at west country accountancy firm Bishop Fleming, three of which are based in the Exeter office.
