We support schools in Seaford to alleviate mental health distress


Thanks for visiting my page. I'm raising money for this charity as they do a great job supporting approximately 150 students at Seaford Head School currently and also have a presence in the 4 local primary schools. The charity is run by volunteers who give up their valuable time and energy to help and support students.

Why have I chosen to train to swim the channel? I have spent a lot of the last ten years swimming in the sea with Eastbourne Sea Swimmers to the point where it has become my second home. I love the sense of freedom, adventure and tranquility that swimming in the sea provides. 

When my Uncle suggested that I should swim the channel a few years ago, my first response was 'that's a very long way, have you got the right woman?' However after thinking about it my opinion quickly changed to 'why not? What a cool adventure!'
