Braving The Open Waters For Great Ormond Street Hospital



Mold-based D&G Independent Ltd is backing fellow wealth management specialist, Jamie Farquhar, as he completes five open water swimming challenges for CASCAID and Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity.


Jamie is Director of Business Development at Square Mile Investment Consulting and Research in London, which works closely with the Welsh wealth management company in the delivery of its investment services. D&G Independent has donated £150 to support this incredibly tough challenge.


Jamie completed his first two swims earlier this year in freezing waters; he swam 1km in 0.8 degrees Celsius and 1mile in minus 3.5 degrees Celsius! He then covered 17km by swimming the length of Windermere in July. Most recently, Jamie conquered the Thames Marathon swim and will be taking on The Dart 10km in September.


Jamie has already smashed his £1,000 target and has raised an incredible £2,400 for Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity. The charity supports the hospital and young patients by funding rebuilding and refurbishments, support for families and children, research into children’s health and life-saving medical equipment.


The challenge was organised in association with CASCAID, which brings together individuals and organisations from the asset management community to raise money for charitable causes.


Commenting on Jamie’s challenge, Director of D&G Independent, Darren Booth, said:


“Jamie is incredibly enthusiastic about a challenge that is, quite simply, bonkers! This same enthusiasm shines through whenever we speak to Jamie and he is always exceptionally supportive of our activities and vision for growth. He played an integral role in the development of our relationship with Square Mile, which has enabled us to offer a reliable investment proposition for our customers. We are delighted to support his efforts in raising funds for such a worthy cause. We wish Jamie the very best of luck as he embarks on his fifth and final challenge!”
