Motor Neurone Disease Appeal

Story

There are so many worthy charities that deserve to have fundraising done on their account but I have chosen one very close to my heart. My lovely, kind and incredibly brave friend Gordon passed away almost 4 years ago after a courageous battle with this horrible, cruel disease. His strength and bravery was absolutely inspiring and is a big reason why I'm so full of those annoying, positive quotes I'm always throwing at you... because if he can be such a positive inspiration whilst dealing with his own mortality then good grief I can certainly do it in his honour...

So... I will be swimming the equivalent of Loch Ness which is a mile, or 65 lengths of a 25m pool to you and me, over the course of the next 4 weeks. All donations to my page will be placed in a fund which is specifically in Gordon's name (but every penny goes to the charity) and you can sponsor me at any point over the 4 weeks or you can wait until I've completed the challenge. 1 mile may not sound much but for someone who swims like a little old lady riddled with arthritis it's gonna be a massive achievement for me!

Thank you for reading and thank you in advance for your donations đź’šđź’š
