Thousands of people voted in The People’s Choice Award category of the Soldiering On Awards, held on Friday 22 April in London, making the Blesma Channel Swim team the winners.
The all-amputee team, Steve White, Jamie Gillespie, Craig Howorth and Conrad Thorpe completed the crossing in September 2014 in just over 12 hours raising around £4,000 for Blesma and setting the record for the first all-amputee team to cross the Channel. They adhered to the Official Channel Swimming Association (CSA) rules which include not wearing wetsuits in water temperatures that average at 18°C for September. They did not wear their prosthetic legs out of choice.
