My story

[p]Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. I have chosen to support Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity (GOSH). Every day brings new challenges at GOSH. Every day, 619 children and young people from across the UK arrive. Every day, doctors and nurses battle the most complex illnesses, and the brightest minds come together to achieve pioneering medical breakthroughs. And every day is a chance for you to make a difference. This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support to give seriously ill children the best chance to fulfil their potential. A better future for seriously ill children starts here.[/p][p]After last year's Five Swims, we've up'd the distance stakes a little and I'm going to swim Windermere North to South and then turn around and swim straight back. All in, it's about 36km. The water temperature will be about 16 degrees and I'll be swimming for about 13 or 14 hours. - A doddle really!![/p][p]Thank you for taking the time to read my page. Please donate to this fantastic cause! Every penny counts and I really appreciate all of your support..[/p]
