Weʼve raised £0 to Help me swim a marathon, to raise money for others

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.
Four years ago I was advised by my physiotherapist, to take up swimming, as this was the best thing I could do for my Arthritis. In addition to this I also have severe asthma.
Last year, I signed up for swimming lessons and grew to love the sport, investing both time and money to learn properly and invest in correct training equipment.
In April this year, I completed two sport relief swimming challenges and had intended, next year to complete several more, to raise funds for charities that have given a lot to me and my family.
Unfortunately, on the night of the 29th November 2016, my swimming bag was stolen from my car. Some of my swimming gear was later found, but I lost a number of items, the most important being my "swimming watch" which not.only is a vital training aid, also counts my laps, which will be vital for me to know, when I complete my swimming challenges next year.
It's unlikely to cost £200, to replace, but this is the minimum just giving will allow me to put, anything raised more than the amount needed will be given to the appropriate charities
