Story

I am learning front crawl! I am drinking half the pool every time I go for a swim. I can do half a length without nearly drowning!  In the next 12 weeks I need to be able to swim 22 miles (the distance of the English Channel) that is almost 2 miles a week.

I am doing this to raise money to support Aspire. They support people paralysed by Spinal Cord Injury. Inspiring, amazing and strong people who have become my friends over the last year, while I have worked here. In their honour I'm taking on the Aspire Channel Swim 2019  to raise money. 

Every four hours someone is paralysed by Spinal Cord Injury and Aspire provides the essential equipment, advice and housing that spinal cord injured people need to live their lives independently. 

This is a big challenge, but the more I raise, the more of a difference I'll make, so please be generous!
