Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Far too many people these days are affected by cancer and any charity trying to alleviate the pain and stress by family members needs to be commended and supported.  I am doing this swim because my mother, my sister and sister-in-law have all been cancer sufferers, thankfully all have survived.  My mother-in-law is currently in the process of giving cancer a kick in the ass.  The Gillian Saltire appeal cannot help my family, but I can totally appreciate what they are doing  to support families in Ayrshire.

I did a trial swim tonight,which was about half of the length of next weeks swim, I was way, way slower than everyone else, kept going though. Plenty of stamina, need more speed!  It's not the end of the world if I don't finish it in the allotted time on  Saturday because we started at the Largs side tonight, we'll be starting at the Cumbrae side next week so technically I'll have done the lot!  (no one is allowed for more than two hours, weather conditions can have an impact too).  I'll give it my best shot.
