Team story

[p]Hi I am Sarah Roseblade. I live in Charlton (South East London) with husband (Colin), Megan (4.5 years) and Toby (2 years). We have been supporters of Charlton Toy Library since Megan was tiny. For the last two years I have been volunteering at the Library and sitting on the committee.[/p][p]The Toy Library serves over 500 families in the area who can't afford access to toys, education and safety materials. We have a mobile van that visits women's refuges, asian women's groups and designated 'stressed families'. [/p][p]The Toy Library receives no funding from central or local government and is struggling to stay open so I am helping to raise essential cash or it will have to close later this year. [/p][p]So please sponsor me and my team on our 2 swims for the price of 1! [/p][p]1) One Mile Team Relay Swim at the local pool on the 28th April. The team is me, Katie Longhurst and The Dolphin (a local swimming legend) aka Gordana Balaban[/p][p]2) One Mile outdoor swim (in the dock!) as part of the Great London Swim on the 26th May.[/p][p]We have been training hard and I am trying to get up to 3 nights a week. Which is hard going for a busy working / mum![/p][p]I am also really, really worried about the outdoor swim and not being able to see where I am going in the dark cold docks. So please support me and my team[/p][p]All my love[/p][p][/p][p]Sarah [/p][p][/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us 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. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
