My story

Thank you for taking the time to visit my Give as you Live donation page!

On Saturday 25th June and to kick start my 2022 OW swimming season, I will be taking on the historic Kessock Ferry Swim. It’s the first time in over 50 years this event is being held, and will follow the classic route across the stretch of exposed tidal water from South to North Kessock and back again (approximately 1200m).

I have driven over the Kessock Bridge / Beauly Firth more times than I can even remember - swimming it will be completely different kettle of fish to my three loch swims later in the year, and a personal challenge (I have never swam a stretch of tidal water like this before!). I also hope that by taking this on, it encourages others to take the plunge (literal or otherwise) to get outdoors, connect, and appreciate the beauty & benefits of nature – especially when it’s on our very doorstep!

The charities:

This historic community event has been re-launched by community outdoor education charity, Àban (SC05143). Àban deliver community outdoor programmes throughout Inverness, with every penny raised going back into supporting charity work within the area to offer positive outdoor adventures for children & families in need. To learn more about Àban, please visit: https://aban.scot/about

This year, Àban have adopted an official charity partner in the Friends of Merkinch Local Nature Reserve (SC037131), and will be sharing 25% of all sponsorship funds from the Kessock Ferry Swim 2022 with them.

The Merkinch nature reserve is located in an area of Inverness that is the eighth most deprived area in Scotland. The Friends of Merkinch Local Nature Reserve believe that everyone deserves access to a green space where they and nature can thrive, and work with local people to improve their lives; both by improving skills with volunteering, but also by being part of the community.
