I'm taking on the Aspire Channel Swim 2016, swimming the distance of the Channel over 12 weeks to raise money for Aspire. Every eight hours someone is paralysed by a Spinal Cord Injury and Aspire provides the essential equipment, advice, housing and grants that spinal cord injured people need to live their lives independently.
I used to swim once a week and do 20 lengths of the pool. Now I need to go 3 times a week and do 40 each time! My son Finlay has helpfully suggested I step up from this in case I am ill at any time! Well let me get going first Finlay!!
This is a big challenge, but the more I raise, the more of a difference I'll make !
