My story

Hi! As most of you know I have been sea swimming since I was a wee girl living in Wick (we didn't have the luxury of a swimming pool!). On 14 February 2021 I completed a sea swim challenge of 0.7 miles in 31 mins to raise funds for Alzheimer Scotland. Since then I have swam most weeks throughout all the seasons and can't imagine a life without sea swimming! The benefits of cold water immersion are huge to both my physical and mental health. I was delighted to get one of the 250 places in the Kessock Ferry Swim and my target is to raise £100 for the social enterprise Àban Outdoor Ltd from which they will donate 25% to the Friends of Merkinch Local Nature Reserve. Over 50 years ago Marcus' grandad used to complete this swim and I'm proud to be following in his footsteps! I am grateful for any donation you can make. Thanks so much!

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 Àban Outdoor Ltd.
