My story

[p]Jolie hasn't been put off from swimming in cold water from an early age! Admittedly, most of it has been in Spain - but that has been in the winter where the temperature is not much higher than 10-12º![/p][p]Last year Jolie swam on New Years Day in Wales at 8º and we struggled to get her out! (No wetsuit in case you wondered!) In December 2020, our good family friend Jonty (Who happens to be the first disabled Ice Mile Swimmer!) asked her if she'd be up for an Ice swim in around 5º and she didn't hesitate to say yes! Since then, (around online school commitments!) she has been going almost every weekend, and now wants to be able put those swims to good by helping raise money for the the Archbishop of York Youth Trust.[/p][p]Jolie plans to swim for a total of 30 minutes in the month of February. The timing of each dip depends on how her body copes each time, the average time she is in for varies between 4 - 8 minutes![/p][p]Set up in 2009, by John Sentamu, then Archbishop of York, the Archbishop of York Youth Trust (www.abyyt.com) exists to see a generation of young people empowered to transform society. Through working in partnership with schools, churches and communities, the Trust develops opportunities for young people to grow in leadership, faith and character through volunteering and leading on social action projects across the country. The Youth Trust covers the whole of the North of England and has been growing into the rest of the country since 2020.[/p][p]Like all charities during the pandemic, the Youth Trust has been affected for obvious reasons. And the other people who are being affected are YOUNG PEOPLE, which are exactly the generation the Youth Trust is designed to help.[/p][p]We are asking you to give generously so the Youth Trust can survive and continue its vital work to help young people in the aftermath of Covid 19.[/p][p]For those that know Jolie, you will know she has her fair share of challenges to deal with, and this swimming is doing wonders for her confidence and mental health. [/p][p]You can even take part yourselves! Sit in an ice bath for a minute and donate £10 to the trust by texting FROSTYFEB to 70085. Don't forget to share your video![/p][p]Thank you to everyone who donates, we're hoping Jolie will smash her target!![/p]
