Team story

[p]You may be ‘slightly’ surprised to hear that on Sunday July 29[sup]th[/sup] I am swimming The Solent to raise money for 3 different charities.  It would be so great and kind if you could support me by donating and following the link below, however small – it will help!  I am also hoping that I don’t end up as a permanent fixture on the front of the Isle of Wight ferry, although my sons would find it an amusing anecdote in years to come, once they have got over the embarrassment – the other worry is being harpooned....[/p][p]The 3 charities I am swimming for are [b]The Isle of Wight Samaritans[/b] – providing confidential, non judgmental, emotional support 24 hours a day.[/p][p][b]MAGGIES – [/b]who have set up drop in centres across the UK for anyone affected by cancer, from just being diagnosed, or undergoing treatment, to post treatment, recurrence, end of life or bereavement – [b]MAGGIES[/b] is about empowering people to live with, through and beyond cancer.[/p][p][b]St Giles’ Church, Bodiam - [/b] this beautiful over 700 year old church is fundamental to English village life and as with all these historic buildings is desperately underfunded.  All money raised will go directly to this church and not to church hierarchy![/p]
