My story

[p]This is my ongoing fundraising page for Mind.  Over the next 18 months I have a variety of swimmy challenges lining up, starting with my first one-way crossing of Windermere in July 2014.  I wasn't planning to fundraise for my Windermere swim, even though it is a very big challenge (17k of swimming which will take 5.5-6 hours) but several people have asked if I was so I thought I'd open the opportunity for anyone who wanted to cheer me on to make a donation to Mind.[/p][p]As many people close to me know, I have been fundraising for Mind since 2009 and have now raised over £12,000.  Mind is a charity close to my heart since my dear friend Emily Riall took her life in November 2006 after a long period of depression.  I have also had significant mental health problems myself, particularly depression, which is proving hard to shift at the moment.  I am very grateful to Mind for the work that they do in trying to shift some of the stigma surrounding mental illness and providing support for those facing these difficulties. For me, lining up challenges is beneficial to my own mental health.[/p][p]As ever, I always fund my challenges myself, so every penny will go straight to Mind and their work.[/p]
