“I have gained many friends”

Lynn Yambao

How long have you been a member of Puffins?

On and off since January 2011.

How did you hear about Puffins?

My physio asked me that I wanted my next challenge to be and I said I wanted to get back into swimming so she recommended Puffins.

What do you get out of Puffins?

I love the people and have gained many new friends since joining the club. My swimming is getting better and better and I feel stronger than ever since my last operation, which has given me such a sense of satisfaction.

What is your greatest achievement?

I can now swim 28 lengths in one session! I’m also using goggles now and gaining the confidence to put my head under water – one of the volunteers has just taught me how to do a push and glide which will help me do even more lengths.
