I'm swimming the channel!
Five years on and after several major operations including one leg being almost completely reconstructed out of steel Neil is swimming the channel.
To swim the English Channel! From the 16th January to 22nd January 2017 Neil will attempt to swim 21 miles, the same distance point to point from the UK to France.
The challenge will take place in an indoor pool and has to be completed within 7 days with a minimum of 3 miles (192 lengths) per day with only a five-minute break allowed every mile.
A Clipstone man, Neil has a passion for football and supporting his local community. Clipstone Welfare Colts Football Club has been a significant part of his life and following a very tough few years the club continues to play such an important role in offering sporting opportunities to children between the ages of 6 to 14 years old.
