My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page .  I am  undertaking a swim challenge to swim the length of the river Tweed (96 miles)  in my local swimming pool in Duns.  I expect to do this within the time frame of 3 months June to August,  [/p][p]I am raising money for a charity called Venture Trust - based in Scotland and for Scotland they help people who have fallen on hardship and lost there way and enable them to rebuild their confidence and self esteem to enjoy a better more fulfilling life.[/p][p]The reason I have chosen Venture Trust as my Charity is because, as a now recovering alcoholic,  they helped me to learn that although alcohol took a lot from me it didn't mean my life was over and that I could recover and be a responsible and worthwhile person in society and for this I cannot thank them enough. [/p][p]I would love to think that by raising funds for Venture Trust I can help,  in a small way. other people in similar situations to myself and give them hope.[/p][p]   Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
