A MAN who swam 124 miles for charity stopped en route in a Henley woman’s garden.

Andre Compton, a trustee of disabled children’s charity Building for the Future, had tea with supporters in the grounds of Bird Place, off White Hill, last Friday before continuing down the Thames.

The property is owned by his friend Diane Sutherland, whose late husband Peter Sutherland founded Henley’s Upper Thames Rowing Club.

Mr Compton started at Lechlade and finished at Teddington Lock. He raised £3,500 for the charity.
