Join local author Chantal McFeely at Prestwick Library as she talks about the inspiration behind her new book ‘Waves of Change’ – how swimming helped her to push through grief and turn dream into a reality.

Pushing through grief is a task we all have to face in our lives. But when that grief comes to us far too early, the pain can be deep and overwhelming. Chantal McFeely lost her soulmate, and father of her 2 youngest sons, Robin, to addiction in 2020. Coming back from Robin’s funeral Chantal had an epiphany. She knew that in spite of her deep sadness she wanted to honour Robin’s memory by raising awareness and reducing the stigma of those struggling with their mental health and addictions. That was when the idea of a ‘swim challenge’ took root, and that in turn developed into an ‘open water swimming’ challenge. The craggy coast around Ayrshire offers many opportunities for such wild swimming.

Free event, but booking is required by T: 01292 476 769.
