Cold Water Swimming
We attend 999 calls alongside an ambulance to improve cardiac arrest survival rates.


Three years ago, I became a Community First Responder in Telford. We are only a small team, and many people are surprised to find out that we are self-funded, relying entirely donations to ensure that we can continue to offer our service.

With this in mind, I have decided to set myself a challenge to raise money for the Telford Community First Responders team.

Every day in February, I will complete a cold water swim in local lakes, pools and rivers. Although I am an experienced cold water swimmer, this will be a huge challenge for me - the water temperature is in single figures and swimming every day will be difficult to manage, but I’m determined to succeed and raise as much money as possible!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
