Jack makes as splash at the Swimming Extravaganza

Rory gave Jack a run for his money when they had a race.

On Saturday families from all over Scotland came to the Haemophilia Scotland Swimming Extravaganza.  We were pleased to have so many families involved in our Mentoring Project together again.

There were videos to watch, faces painted, and swimming bags to decorate too.  Our guest of honour for the day was Jack Bridge. Jack is 21 and doesn’t let having severe haemophilia A hold him back.  He is the the holder of 8x British swimming records and competed at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

Each family got some one to one time with Jack in the pool to talk about everything from swimming and training techniques to the importance of sticking to your treatment regime.

We were very pleased that Jenna Reid from the Edinburgh Haemophilia Centre joined us for the day too.  She showed the Haemophilia Get Fit & Active video and was on hand to answer any questions.
