My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. 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][p]I want to raise funds to help local schools to pay for Life Education to visit the schools and help the children learn about making healthy choices in their lives. I haven't swum for 20 years and think it would be good for me if rather tough. So at 70 I hope to make a healthy choice and get fitter. Everest is 8848 metres high or 5.5 miles and that is a long way in cold water. [/p]
