My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page.[/p][p]But why have I invited you here?[/p][p]Two years ago, my mother, Elizabeth 'Betty' Heller, was diagnosed with leukaemia.   Very sadly, she died last October.   She was brave and stoic to the very end, but leukaemia is a terrible disease which no one should have to suffer.  In a small way, I intend trying to help with that.[/p][p]In her memory, I would like to raise some money for Bloodwise, an excellent charity which is devoted not just to finding a cure for blood cancer, but to making better the lives of those who are affected by it.  Please visit their website to learn some more about them:[/p][p][url=https://protect-eu.mimecast.com/s/7GzJBFK6vhW?domain=bloodwise.org.uk][sup]https://bloodwise.org.uk/charity/about[/sup][/url][/p][p]Reluctantly accepting what someone told me earlier this year that "you can't get sponsored to go for a nice lunch", I have decided to take the plunge, quite literally, into something a little more demanding - the world of open-water swimming.   [/p][p]I will be opening my account with a sea swim in the Polkerris Swim Festival on the 26th of August and then in September I intend completing a swimmer's classic - one lap of the Serpentine in Hyde Park as part of the annual Swim Serpentine event - in return for a little bit of your hard-earned cash. [/p][p]Having always had a total aversion to endurance events, I do not expect this to be easy.  It turns out that one mile is many many lengths of Tooting paddling pool.[/p][p]If I could tell my mother I was doing this, she would laugh.[/p][p]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations, however small.[/p]

Well done Richard. Very impressive indeed. Am sure your mother would have been very proud of you for doing this, as I'm sure she was of everything else you have achieved. Best, Jo
