This year Widnes saw a team of adult ice skaters take to Lake Bled in Slovenia to compete in the second Swan Challenge. The team from WISC joined a 57 strong GB Team that had a very successful run in a range of categories competing with a range of skaters from over 19 countries in Europe. Once again they where faithfully supported by Rena and Ken, who bring a calming reassurance and give all the skaters confidence as they take to the ice. The team achieved some amazing results.
