A big congratulations to Aldridge’s Ellie Simmonds for winning a BAFTA on Sunday night for her 2023 TV show ‘Ellie Simmonds: Finding My Secret Family.’ 

In the programme, she delved into the topics of disability and adoption while tracing her own adoption story to find her birth mother. I had the privilege of meeting Ellie earlier this year through Speedo Active, where they are working towards the remarkable goal of ensuring that every child in the UK can swim 25 meters by 2025.
