Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am part of a small business team that has been given the task to raise £750 as an individual target.

'748 million people – roughly one in ten of the world's population – have no choice but to get water from wherever they can, whether it's a dirty pond or an expensive water vendor.'

'Without access to safe water for drinking, cooking and cleaning, people are more likely to suffer from water-related diseases. These can be fatal, killing over 1,400 children a day.'

My challenge is to swim 22 miles in 4 weeks by attending my local pool 5 times a week to complete 71 lengths (of a 25m pool) each time.




  • After a week :) +3
