TeamSelkie Bios – Matthew Davenport
18th September 2018
I’m Matty, I’m 44 and I live near Chester. I’ve worked in the homelessness sector for over twenty years and I swim mostly to relax and let go of the stress my job brings. I learned to swim at school but never took it up until 2 years ago. I swim outdoors all year now, especially winter

What excites me about swimming?
The buzz I get after ice swimming makes me feel victorious, invincible and glad to be alive. It reminds me of the challenges that life brings, and that to overcome them, I need other people’s help to stay safe, recover and appreciate the good times.
