It's time to get the ball rolling on this...

In may this year 2024 I will be swimming Derwent water in Keswick In the Keswick Mountain Festival 2024 for the Barnsley Hospital Charity supporting the intensive care unit as they saved my friends life last year, I will be swimming 1 mile with my daughter, work colleagues and friends, we will be in the water for about 1 hour, and no idea what the temperature is going to be. Back in December I raised £36 for my birthday and another £65 along the way, I have raised a total of £11.738.08 since 2013 and hopefully will raise a lot more with the help of all of you,back in November i won my category for the proud of Barnsley awards 2023 for the charity fund raiser of the year if you would like to see my video please have a look on u tube here is the link , where you will hear about all the charities ive raised money for.x if you would like to sponsor me please do so on this page,please leave a comment so I can thankyou personally, it would be greatly appreciated.
