My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. 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. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p][span=background-color: #ffffff;]Diabetes UK is the leading UK charity that cares for, connects with and campaigns on behalf of all people affected by and at risk of diabetes.[/span][/p][p]I am to take on a challenge tougher than Everest in July 2013 - [b][span=background-color: #ccffcc;]Swimming the english Channel solo.[/span][/b][/p][p][b][span=background-color: #ccffcc;]I am SELF FUNDING THE solo  SWIM so every penny donated will go to Charity.[/span][/b][/p][p]Less than 1,000 people have completed the 21 -mile cross-Channel swim, whereas over 3000 have conquered the world's tallest mountain. Only one in ten people who train for the channel actually complete it.[/p][p]The English Channel is one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world, with over 600 tankers and 200 ferries crossing it every day. Other problems include debris, jellyfish, currents and tides.[/p][p]As part of the challenge you are not allowed to wear anything that aids buoyancy or warmth. However I will be accompanied by a support boat to ensure I stay out of trouble.[/p][p]I hope to undertake this epic challenge in the week beginning the 13th July 2013 nut as part of the training I will also be part of a team relay during the week of 17th August 2012 to 24th August 2012, as well as various other open water challenges along the way.[/p]
