Christian, a service user at Ernest Kleinwort Court, celebrated a success recently. He won bronze medals in both freestyle and backstroke at a recent swimming gala. He regularly attends the Seahorses Swimming Club on a weekly basis and really enjoys going.
Christian has been attending the Sea Horses Swimming Club since 2003 and likes going to meet new people because it is something that he can do independently outside of the service.
He also likes the social side and making new friends. He has recently been invited to a Christmas dinner this year at the Harvester. Christian really enjoys swimming because it's good for getting the exercise and makes him feel healthy.
He was over the moon with his achievements and can be seen proudly displaying his medals."I like going swimming and I'm really proud of myself for winning my medals."
