My story

[p]As part of the campaign to help charities affected by COVID 19, John and I have both decided to attempt to swim 2.6 km - a mere 217 lengths of the pool -on Sunday 26th April.[/p][p]We will be swimming in aid of Kids Inspire an Essex based charity working with disadvantaged children & young people who have mental health issues or have been traumatised . Kids Inspire are facing the double whammy of increasing demand brought on by the lockdown and the total collapse in fundraising.[/p][p]We must stress neither of us has swum anything like this before and that we only decided to do this today so have not been in training . If you feel able to support us .....thank you.[/p]
