Sunny Lowry was the first English woman to swim the channel. She accomplished this feat in 1933. She learned to swim at Victoria Baths and has been active in the campaign to restore and re-open the building.
Sunny Lowry has played a key role in attracting support to the Baths. I thought she came across fantastically on the Restoration programme and I'm sure she persuaded thousands of people all over the UK to vote for the Baths. I was very saddened to hear the news of her death on 21 February, 2008.
