During the week of 14th June, 2021, I'll be in a relay team of 5 women swimming the channel!
We are part of one big team called 'The Channel Belles' and in 3 separate teams, we will attempt to swim the 21 miles across the English Channel from England to France. We are mixed ages and abilities, but all determined, committed and a little bit crazy!
Each of us is raising money for a charity of our choice and I am raising money for Raise Your Hands, a fantastic organisation that support 12 exceptional small charities working with young people.
The projects Raise Your Hands supports, are really are close to my heart and having spent the last twenty years working with young people, I know how important these opportunities are for our disadvantaged youth.
I took up open water swimming in May 2019 as a way of coping with the end of my marriage and it has become my passion. I've always wanted to swim the channel and now that it is on the horizon, I cannot wait. Knowing that people will be sponsoring me, and that the money will go to such worthwhile causes, will definitely spur me on!
Anything you can do to support would be greatly appreciated.
