My story


Thanks for visiting our page! With the help of my incredible support team, I've set a new record of 41 hours 7 minutes (down from 59 hours) for swimming the full length of all 13 accessible lakes in the Lake District. The total distance is 71km and will take us all over the Lakes to swim Wastwater, Windermere, Elterwater, Grasmere, Rydalwater, Coniston, Ullswater, Brotherswater, Bassenthwaite, Loweswater, Crummockwater, Buttermere and Derwentwater. You can see a brief report here:

The swim is in memory of my friend Stuart Pearson. Stu was an incredibly warm, generous and humorous person, and worked as a clinical psychologist in Leeds, and we’re welcoming donations to the Leeds North and West Foodbank where he volunteered.

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 Leeds North And West Foodbank.
