    Story

    I am going to be swimming for 12 hrs about 32k in total, the distance of the English channel swim.
    I am raising much needed funds for Weymouth Surf Lifesaving Club, which was started up 2 years ago by an amazing woman, Alice Higgins. Already a full time member of the RNLI she saw the need for a local Surf Lifesaving Club to teach children and adults essential water safety and lifesaving skills.
    Run completely by volunteers, we train every Saturday on the beach May-September and have regular pool sessions throughout the winter. Children learn essential skills to keep themselves and their families safe in the water. We are training the lifeguards of the future.
    We are a whole community of parents, lifeguards and children who have a passion for the sea and keeping everyone safe in it. Fun and games run alongside serious issues such as the RNLI's motto "float to live" and what to do if you're caught in a rip current.
    The club has doubled in size since it's start and we desperately need more funds to buy further equipment and train more coaches so we can grow as a club to keep the waiting list of children who want to join us at a minimum.
    Please help support me and this amazing club, thank you.

      The challenge has changed a little due to Covid-19 and the restrictions it put on training. I managed to maintain a degree of fitness with runs, bike rides and very cold dips in the river, but swim training only started 2 weeks ago. I had to start at the beginning, from 0 hrs to 12hrs in 6 weeks! Realistically I'm not sure it can be done, so the challenge is now to swim for as long as I can. If my shoulders start protesting too much there is a plan B in place which will be a 12hr swim run instead. Thank you for your continued support
