We raise awareness of stalking to help make young people safer


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

This December, I am swimming 24km in 24 days to raise money for the Alice Ruggles Trust. Many will know that this charity is very close to my heart. Our dear Alice was a victim of relentless stalking and was murdered in 2016. The trust has been set up in her name to spread awareness and education as well as to prevent what happened to Alice from happening to anyone else. 

Alice was just 24 when she was killed. She was a beautiful person, inside and out. She would have an entire room in stitches with her bubbly personality and quick-witted humour. She was smart, motivated, and truly one of a kind. We all miss her so much. 

Having re-found my love for swimming since moving to Australia, I will be attempting 1km a day for 24 days finishing up on what would have been her birthday. Earlier this year I had to re-teach myself front crawl (also known as freestyle to all you Aussies reading this) and as I currently only reach 2km on a good week, this should be quite a challenge. I'll also be braving Icebergs swimming pool which is definitely still a little bit icy this side of Christmas. 

I will be eternally grateful for any support and send love in advance to everyone. Sydney-siders, you are welcome to come and join me for a swim!
