The husband of a former amateur swimming champion is searching for the trophy she won 40 years ago.

The cup was won in the 1970s when she was a member of the Dumbarton Amateur Swimming Club.

Rachel Brown (now Alexander) was part of the local club up until 1979.

Between 1974 and 1979 she won the Ladies’ Senior Championship Cup.

Now, her husband wants to locate the cup as a 60th birthday surprise.

Rachel has relocated to Northamptonshire and a local radio station has been in touch to ask for our help.

Do you remember Rachel? Were you a member of the club or know where the cup might be?
