Liquid bulks manager in the swim

[ February 17, 2022   //   ]

Jo Winning, quality planning and performance manager at Liverpool bulk liquid storage firm UM Terminals has completed a charity swim challenge to help people affected by spinal cord injuries.

Between October and December last year, Jo took part in the Channel Swim Challenge, swimming the length of the English Channel (22 miles) in 12 weeks.

Jo completed the challenge at her local pool in Shrewsbury  in just over eight weeks, raising £1,150 with UM Terminals’ holding company, W&R Barnett, contributing a further £650.

She said: “I found the swimming to be quite therapeutic, but I also became quite competitive with myself – wanting to push myself to achieve quicker targets week by week.”
