It's November, the water is cold and there is only one thing to do

I am doing a sponsored bikini ride in Cardiff Bay to raise money for Katie's volunteering trip to Belize in July 2017.

Katie will be ready with hot chocolate, jumpers and hand warmers as I will have maximum of 8 minutes in the water before the shit hits the fan. I will be doing the ride this Saturday when the temperature will be 5 degrees - yay!

Below I have attached details of the volunteering trip that Katie is doing. Please donate so I don't get hypothermia for no reason.

Hi!!! I have been selected to go on a volunteering trip through Girlguiding Laser UK to Belize with a great team. Along with our two leaders, we will be planning a 3-week service project. I will be flying out next summer and hope to volunteer in a children’s home in central Belize as well as doing some conservation work, before enjoying a few days of exploring the Belizean culture.
This trip will hold many obstacles but the first I will have is to overcome the challenge of raising £3,000 to cover my expenses, including flights, volunteering placement fees and any resources we will need whilst we are out there.
My group has set up a blog so if you want to see my progress over the next 9 months then the link is:
