Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

It is almost a year since John died from a massive and unexpected heart attack. I wanted to do something positive and challenge myself and so this is it!  I'm swimming the channel (in Alfreton swimming baths mind!!)

I am starting on 30 August and have three months to complete around 1444 lengths....... I'm not a particularly fast or strong swimmer so wish me luck and please, please donate, its a very worthwhile cause and it will of course encourage me to complete the challenge.  Thanks lots xxx
