Weʼre raising £450 to help the Aveton Gifford pre-school, who support the Bantham Swoosh swim.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This July I will be heading out for a little swim, The Bantham Swoosh, 6km down a river in Devon. Swimming is life. When I do this swim I will be donating money to the local pre-school in Aveton Gifford who support all of us water babies swimming the Swoosh. And if you'd like to, you can too. Funding is challenging for this rural pre-school, which is a vital and precious resource for the community.
I have never swum this far before. I have also overcomplicated my training by doing it at a travel-heavy time, so each week I'm trying to make sure I have a pool or body of water to get in. Here's where I've swum so far:
London Fields Lido (my regular); Covent Garden Oasis outdoor pool; YMCA Vanderbilt Manhattan (one swim free!); Asphalt Green Upper East Side Manhattan (luxury, but also one swim free!); London Aquatics Centre (of Olympics fame)
