Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Following on from my 2021 Challenge of walking 1083 miles Lands End to John O’Groats, my 2022 challenge is to swim (virtually) The English Channel. 

The English Channel is 22 miles.   I aim to swim this distance in February (28days) raising money for St Luke’s (Sheffield) Hospice

I will be swimming at Stocksbridge Community Leisure Centre   One mile is 64 lengths  I will record the progress on my Fitbit and upload the results weekly. 

Why St Luke’s?   …… in memory of two guys, David Shaw and Mark Allsopp

David and Mark spent their last days in St Lukes, surrounded by their loving families.  ❤️❤️

So,  this one’s for you Mr ‘Diamond’ David Shaw and Mr Mark  ‘Smiler’ Allsopp  🍺🍺🏊‍♀️🏊‍♀️
