Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I will be taking on the challenge of swimming the English Channel this summer. Having completed a relay crossing in 2019 and now living in Dover, I felt it would be rude not to attempt it!

21 miles as the crow flies (although I will be covering more miles due to the tides) water temperature is expected to be approximately 16 degrees, swimming in the dark and jellyfish means this is definitely a big challenge.

More people have climbed Everest than swam from England to France with less than 3000 successful solo swims.

I am doing this to raise money for Aspire; Aspire provides practical help to people who have been paralysed by Spinal Cord Injury, supporting them from injury to independence. I am funding the event myself, so every penny donated goes straight to the charity!

Cheers Kev
