My story

[p]Hello / Jambo, and thanks so much for visiting my page. [/p][p]Those of you who have seen me recently will know how totally inspired i was by the International Needs projects that I saw first hand on my amazing Umoja Africa Journey (umojajourney.com) in Jan/Feb.[/p] [p]In the Nairobi slums we were shocked at the appalling conditions but uplifted by a group of ex street children who are dedicated to establishing a car washing project to help give current street children a means of earning money.  At the same time they will be taught business skills, equipment maintenance, banking, saving, and conflict resolution.  Basically the project will give them a future![/p] [p]So that's my motivation - to support that International Needs project by completing the [lt]span[gt]Brownsea Swim 2016.  This is a sea swim around Brownsea Island near Poole, 4 miles, no wetsuit.  It has been interesting getting started by swimming in the River Nene through the winter! I will need to notch up the miles as the water warms up over the Summer.[lt]/span[gt][/p] [p]I would so appreciate you sponsoring me through Virgin Money Giving. Sponsor pledges and donations will be quickly processed (apparently!). 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.[/p] [p]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any contributions.[/p][p]Nicola[/p][p][/p][p][/p]
