Jim Swim 2!
Hi, thanks for visiting the fundraising page for my swim this year, which I imagine you have found via my main swim site (link below).
As mentioned on there, on 16 June I will be swimming two miles in Lake Windermere to try and raise money for the Trigeminal Neuralgia Association UK, a wonderful small charity that does a lot of great work on a tiny budget - as such any money that we can raise for them will go a long way!
I would really appreciate anything that you can contribute toward this. Keep an eye on the site for details of my progress and discomfort. I will put all of my energy and hard work into this, I really hope that in turn you see fit to put a few quid in!
Please visit the main site at http://jimswim.co.uk/ and remember, no how much pain and discomfort this may cause me, it will be nothing compared to what someone with TN goes through on a daily basis.
All the best,
Jim Hall £20.00 (+ £5.00 giftaid)
