Story

As most of you probably already know, I'm not the greatest of swimmers or the most confident in the water! But I do love a challenge which is why I've decided to do Swim 22. From the 22nd February I will have three months to swim 22 miles - now that doesn't sound a lot but it's actually the distance of the English Channel from here to France. And when you swim at the speed I do (and are too scared to put your head under water), it's gonna take me a while! 

Not only do I want to become a better swimmer, I also want to raise money for a great charity - Diabetes UK. Every day in my job I see how all types of diabetes can affect people, including their families and friends. I would really appreciate any donation you can give to help raise as much money as I can for such a worthy cause. Thank you. 

Do you know the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes? Can you name the four most common symptoms of Type 1 diabetes to catch early diagnosis in children? Have you heard that more people in the UK have diabetes than cancer and dementia combined? Please visit www.diabetes.org.uk to find out more now.
