    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Three years ago, I moved to live by the sea and found myself immersed in the wonderous world of sea swimming. In that time, I have been lucky enough to experience the amazing things that the sea swimming community offers – lifelong friendships, kindness and compassion, fun, stress-relief, physical challenge and the magic that is the sea!

    I was taught how to swim by my mum at the age of two, and have been a water babe ever since (if I'm not in the pool or the sea, you'll find me in the bath). Swimming the channel has always been a dream of mine and I am a terrible runner, so the marathon is out! In 2016, fuelled by too much prosecco, along with my friends Marie and Jo, we booked a channel relay swim and had a successful crossing in September 2016. 2 years later, having trained, lived and breathed channel swimming every day for as long as I can remember, I am back to attempt it by myself (although Marie and Jo are still being dragged along for the experience!)

    Getting here has been a brilliant but hard journey, I have learnt so much about myself and met the most amazing people along the way – there is genuinely nothing as fabulous as the sea swimming community.

    Amongst all the training, I have been working with some sea swimming friends in Brighton to set up a charity, called Sea Sure. Sea Sure is aimed at promoting the benefits of sea swimming and our vision is to be able educate and facilitate bringing the benefits of sea swimming, to individuals or groups of people who might otherwise not have access to the benefits. These might include improving mental health, managing pain relief and creating a safe and inclusive environment for individuals from all backgrounds to experience the physical and mental benefits of sea swimming.

    In order to give people the opportunity to access these opportunities, we need to raise money to pay for facilities, run courses and bring in experts in the field. We also aim to provide disabled access for those with mobility restrictions which prevent them from enjoying sea swimming.

    By undertaking the 21 mile channel swim attempt, I am aiming to raise money to help fund the start-up of Sea Sure and would appreciate any donations people might like to give. Even if you aren’t able to donate at this time, I would love your support in following me on the following link and follow my piloting boat "Suva" .

    Thank you everyone in advance for your support!

      What is crowdfunding?

      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.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
