Dr Lesley Walker

Lesley became involved in Haringey Aquatics over 20 years ago, when her daughters learnt to swim. Over the last two decades, Lesley has been an integral part of the volunteer base of Haringey Aquatics. Most notably, she has led the committee as its Chairwoman for over ten years, and most recently she has led the start-up of a satellite programme of aqua-aerobics and swimming lessons at Northumberland Park. In recognition of her outstanding contribution to the club, Lesley was presented with the London Volunteer of the Year Award in 2013 at the Aquaforce Awards.

Away from the pools, Lesley was Director of Information at Cancer Research UK and brings a wealth of experience to the committee in her current role as Treasurer. Contact via
