    A Special Presentation

    During the lunch break, we will be showing “Tonic of the Sea“, a very special short film by Katie Maggs. Tonic of the Sea is a mini-documentary showing the link between mental health and sea swimming. Katie swims off the rocks of Penzance, UK nearly everyday of the year. Swimming has helped her overcome some of the struggles that life all too often throws our way. The hope is that her story may help others who are faced with similar challenges.
