We are sad to have lost two members from the Penguin family in recent weeks.
Val Forbes, wife of longstanding Club member Graham, had been fighting a brave battle against cancer for several years. Through all of her treatment Val remained smiling and positive, and kept up her favourite pastime – dancing – for as long as possible. In her memory Graham has set up a Justgiving page to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care: www.justgiving.com/val-forbes.
Kenny Power joined the Club as a junior in the ’50s. He represented Penguin in swimming and waterpolo and also played water polo for Middlesex. He is famously remembered for his midnight swim across the Thames and back again in the week before Christmas one year! His funeral will be held on Thursday 7th November, 11.45am at Amersham Crematorium, Whielden Lane HP7 0ND.
Our thoughts are with Val’s and Kenny’s families.
