This year's Soccer Aid match to benefit Unicef takes place at Old Trafford on Sunday 5th June 2016. It's the 10th anniversary! £17 million has been raised to date! 

It's also Ella's 10th birthday that weekend! 

We wanted to mark these milestone occasions by doing something a bit special again.....  I'm a huge Robbie Williams fan and Ella loves her music too. Robbie and Olly are her favourite singers. 

In 2014 we raised a brilliant £1262 (£1500+) including Gift Aid for Unicef. Ella was only 7 at the time. 

In keeping with the football theme we have decided to:

#ScoreForSoccerAid doing our own version of 45 each way.  Instead of 45 minutes running up and down a football pitch, we are both swimming 45 lengths of the pool each way. That's 90 laps each. About 2 and a half miles or the length of 25 football pitches! 

We are SO excited to be able to EXCLUSIVELY reveal our secret fundraising weapon #RollyBear! 

Rolly has very kindly been signed in person by the very gorgeous Mr Robbie Williams and the very lovely Mr Olly Murs. They've probably both given him a cheeky little cuddle too! One lucky person will WIN this very special little 'man of the match!' He's the only one of these IN THE WORLD and he's up for grabs! There are 200 raffles tickets for sale!

Having run the length of the pitch at Wembley (in my trademark heels) on Robbie's Take the Crown Tour to get to the front row, and done quite a few barrier sprints since for Let Me Entertain You 2015 this is a VERY big challenge for me! 

Ella is almost 10 and this is her second sponsored event. I am somewhat older (!) with dubious fitness levels at best,(!) so please dig deep and support us both in our epic swim!

The UK Government has pledged again to double all donations made this year to Soccer Aid 2016, so every pound you donate will be doubled.  If you are a UK tax payer, please remember to add Gift Aid to your donation too

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page - please donate and help us smash our target! 

We will be tweeting from the pool in June! You can follow @1scrummymummy on Twitter to see our progress!

Thank you all
