My story

[p]I started wild swimming 4 years ago and having found a real passion for outdoor swimming, I feel ready to really challenge myself this year! I am going to attempt to swim the English Channel in a relay (4 person) in a few weeks and then attempt to swim the 11.5 mile length of Windermere on 2 September! No wetsuit - just me and the water. [/p][p]I am raising money for two small charities supported by the AFPA (Asset Finance Professionals Association) this year. One is a small school for severely disabled children who are trying to raise money for a sensory garden and the other supports children's mental health. I am certain that every penny I raise will make a huge impact on these worthy charities and will also help me to "just keep swimming". Thanks for your support it really means a lot.[/p]
