Team story

[p][/p][p]We foolishly bragged (whilst in the pub) that we could swim a mile in open water.[/p][p]Unfortunately for us, our wives, Debbie and Claire, who both work at Columbus School and College, pointed out that there was ‘Swim Serpentine 2016’ being held in Hyde Park on the 24[sup]th[/sup] September 2016 which is a 1 mile open water swim.[/p][p]So far the hardest part has been trying to find rubber rings that fit our waist lines but this is only the start![/p][p]Please dig deep and donate to this very worthy charity that is close to both our hearts and follow our training up to the event.[/p][p]All money raised will be used to buy iPads and communication software for the students of Columbus School and College.  The students, aged 3-19 all have profound and complex needs, many with Autism and life limiting conditions.  Many of these young people are either non-verbal or have speech and language delays.  These resources will make a big difference to help them to communicate, which is something most of us take for granted.[/p][p]Through this page, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to our charity. 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. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p]Thank you for your support![/p][p]Alan and Andy[/p][p][/p][p][b]Update 22nd August: [/b] We have both been training hard at Trifarm, where we feel a little out of place with all the athletes.  We're not being put off, we are determined to raise as much as we can for these much needed iPads!  [/p][p]Thank you to everyone that has sponsored us so far, we really apppreciate your support.  Please spread the word so we can raise as much as possible.[/p]
