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.

After a quiet 2 weeks due to my rib injury, where I only managed 2 miles...

I'm back in the pool and on track now with a 2 and a quarter miles swim this morning.

Total now stands at 227.03 miles, so just under 4 miles to achieve my 11th 'Channel Swim'

Still a little short of my £2000 target.

BPL Bircotes Leisure Centre, where I work, are running a Christmas Hamper raffle at £1 each - for Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity and the MNDA, a portion of the profits will also add to my total.. So please support this if you can.

Just back from a 10 day holiday in Corfu and managed an average of a mile a day swim.

I even managed to get stung by a Jellyfish twice in a non counting swim in the sea off Antipaxos.

Swim Total now stands at 215.56 miles - so have passed my 10th 'Channel Swim' total (210 miles).

Thank you to all recent donations, which include Jules (fellow Torquay United Supporter) and Tom, Eira and Davina
