Someone very, very important to me lost someone very, very important to her to this shi**y disease, so I wanted to do something.

What I'm actually going to do is swim a channel relay (swimming from England to France as part of team) - twice.

The first is a four-person relay which will hopefully take place at the end of August. In it we will swim for an hour each and I expect to get 3 or 4 swims (so four hours of swimming).

The second is a two-person relay at the end of September. For this one we will swim for two hours at a time and again I expect to swim 4 times, however this will mean eight hours of swimming.

If you think that this is something that is worth a few pennies then please donate. Thank you.

The four-person relay was successfully completed:

Unfortunately the two-person relay won't be happening. I'm trying to organise to swim a length of Windermere instead (10.5 miles). But if anyone wants their donation back please get in touch.

UPDATE - 26th Sept

Windermere swim done, read more here:
