I will be swimming a mile a day, that's 64 lengths of a normal pool, and I'll be swimming every day for a full year! It seems scary just writing it.. If I miss a day due to illness or pool closure, I have to catch up by swimming 2 miles the next day. It's a relentless challenge, and a significant one. I managed to successfully complete this challenge 3 years ago in support of cancer charities, so I know just how hard it is. This time I'm swimming for my close friend who lost her first baby just 3 weeks prior to giving birth. I can't imagine how traumatic this must be for her and her husband. To give birth to a baby that is no longer alive, for your body to produce milk with no use, and to have the wonderful anticipation of a new baby turn to despair and trauma. I can't take their pain or their grief, but I can swim for them, for their baby, and for other facing a similar situation. Please support me in raising funds for this amazing charity! Every pound or euro will help to lift this amazing couple in support as they start the long healing process.

Thinking of your friends at this awful time. We lost our baby girl two weeks before her due date and it is the most brutal experience. Wishing them lots of strength and I'm here if they want to chat x

About the fundraiser
I am a single working mum who wants to support an amazing friend at a time of grief and sadness. My friend sadly lost her 1st baby just 3 weeks before her due date, and is completely devestated. This charity has been a huge support to her and her husband.
