Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am a writer and swimmer who takes to the water each day in December to help battle my problems with mental health, but also to raise awareness of issues at this time of the year. 

I am looking to raise £21 per day for each day of December - £21 could run Mind UK online peer support community, Elefriends for an hour, helping people connect with others and feel less alone.

The first time I did Dip a Day December I raised money and awareness about homelessness in the UK, last year I made my focus more about my own battle with depression. This year I want to bring the themes together and raise the profile of isolation at this time of year. Instead of just swimming every day in December, I would also like to swim with a different person each day. I am seeking a range of people to dip with - do you want to join?
