Story

Hi

My name is Donna and I have three children that are all interested in sports of different kinds, I have noticed that both in schools and in clubs there is a lack of money to buy some of the equipment that is needed as other things take priority. I am aware that we need to encourage our children to actively take part in sports to help ensure that they lead active lives.

I am trying to raise enough money to be able to buy a some needed sports equipment that can then donated to a school or club in need so that the children will then be able to make good use of it, the more money that I can raise the more equipment I can donate.

I would also like to be able to donate some money to Dementia Awareness as I have a personal interest in this and as we have an again population and this area needs further research for things that can be done to help people live with it and find new medications for this.

I am looking to swim 100 miles (obviously not all in one go) which is the equivalent of swimming Holyhead to Belfast. I am aiming to complete this within 12 weeks swimming approximately 40lengths of a 50m pool a day (with time off at weekends for good behaviour).

I will be providing updates on my lengths swam with the tracker from my local pool as proof both on this page and on my Facebook page.

For those of you that know me well being able to help someone else achieve something, is something that I feel is a privilege and we all need a helping hand occasionally.

Thanks in Advance

Donna

So I want to ask with that in mind whether you could donate towards these causes, as much or as little as you can all will be appreciated and go towards hopefully a few good causes.
