My story

During 2022, I will be attempting an epic swimming challenge.

I will attempt to swim the equivalent of a Channel Swim (21 miles) - every month in 2022 - a total of 252 miles over the course of the year.

My fundraising will be split equally between the Motor Neurone Disease Association & Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.

Thank you for checking out my page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto Motor Neurone Disease Association and Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.

My updates

Today I have completed my 8th 'Channel' Swim..

Found it hard to get back into my Swimming, after two weeks on Holiday - taking in the Commonwealth Games.

I will hopefully keep ahead of schedule.

Thank you to all recent donations, these are very much appreciated.

Reached 159.11 miles this morning, so less than 100 miles to go in my Challenge.

Also reached the half way point in my fundraising (£1000). Thank you to everyone who has donated, since I began my Challenge on the 3rd January.

Did my 1st Open Water Swim tonight at Thrybergh Lake, Rotherham - swimming 2600 metres in 54 minutes.

This swim means I have now completed my 7th Channel Swim - mileage now stands at 147.75 miles.

Following the article in the Worksop Guardian last week, I am due to be interviewed on BBC Radio Nottingham this Friday (8th July) at 3.15pm

In my previous update, posted early today, is an article about my Challenge, that has been reported in the Worksop Guardian this week.

My mileage is at present 143.07 miles - so just under 4 miles to go, to reach my 7th Channel Swim target.

Thankyou to all recent donations, these are very much appreciated.

Thanks again Tony x
