Plunge team best bits 

Producing this print issue has involved a lot of research, interviewing people at the top of the cold-water therapy game and producing stunning visuals. Here’s a few of the Plunge team’s highlights while pulling this issue together:

Our social media deputy editor, Maddie Balcombe, got the scoop with Owain. Here’s what she had to say: “It was an honour to speak to Owain about his experience on BBC’s Freeze the Fear. It was inspiring hearing about how cold water helped him overcome his mental struggles. He was so enthusiastic that I even started to contemplate a trip to the Italian Alps.”

Hansa Tote, our audience editor, caught up with the Geordie Ice Woman and beach artist Rob Arnold. “It was so lovely to be able to tell such a heartwarming story about Sarah and her cold-water journey. Speaking to artist Rob Arnold was also opened my eyes to issues I didn’t even know about”, she said. 

“It was great to hear from Ollie and Emma at Blue Horizons. The work they do to provide equipment and support for people with additional needs to enter open water is incredible. I loved hearing the stories they had to tell – I’m sure you’ll enjoy reading about them too,” said our deputy content editor, Eve Davies, who wrote From Wheelchair to Watersports. 

Our deputy audience editor, George Phillips, was encouraged by his conversation with the wild woman of the Wye. “Speaking with Angela about her life of activism inspired me. It gave me hope that there’s passionate and dedicated people fighting to save our waters,” he said.
