Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On 3rd September, myself and my good friend Colin Lavety are attempting to swim the full length of Loch Lomond from Balloch to Ardlui (or Ardlui to Balloch - dependant on weather conditions).

This is a distance of 22.6 miles (if we manage to swim in a relatively straight line!) - that's further than swimming the English Channel (approx. 21 miles). Although we won't have to worry about jelly fish or container ships :-)

We've spent the last few months training for this and recently swam almost half the loch in around five and a half hours - so we're going to be in the water for a long time!

I'm raising money for charity - SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health). SAMH currently operates over 60 services in communities across Scotland to provide support to people to help them have better mental health and wellbeing.

I'd really appreciate if you could donate a few pounds.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
