Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure.

So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
Due to my own personal long term medical conditions, without the support of Diabetes UK the Paula Carr Diabetic Centre and the NHS, I would still be unable to walk and having to use my mobility scooter on a daily basis. For the past 5 years the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital have been monitoring my progress as this is where the selected surgeons are based. My monthly check ups have now just been terminated and, for the first time in 11 years, I no longer have any more hospital appointments and my weight has stabilised. I have now managed to lose a total of 12 stone, again with the help
of Diabetes UK. You can therefore imagine my families comments and those of my friends when I told them that I was entering Swim22 this year, which involves a swim of 22 miles over a period of time, commencing on the 22nd February 2018, with all sponsorship funds I raise being donated to Diabetes UK. My swim will take place in the pool located at Eastwell Manor and will consist of swimming a total of 1,770 lengths. If you are able, I would appreciate it if you could sponsor me for this challenge which, as I say, will be donated to Diabetes UK. Thanks in advance for your support and please remember that Diabetes is a condition, not an illness, that is now affecting numerous
families in the UK and this is not necessarily always caused by being overweight.
