My story

Wow! This is my THIRD year of fundraising for Afghanistan, and it marks 3 years since the Taliban took over and our help is needed now more than ever.

For the past 2 years I have swam my furthest distance in open water - why not UP THE ANTE and do 5k and in the British sea?????

This will be a massive challenge for me, never have done this far EVERRRR in the water, let alone in a choppy sea, so please please support Afghanistan and give generously.

As a friend from Kabul says: Please don't forget about us! She wrote this message to share:

To the people of Afghanistan,

During these difficult times, please know that you are not alone. Your courage and resilience is truly inspiring.

Please prioritize your safety and well-being, and take care of yourselves and your families. Support networks and humanitarian organizations are here to assist you—reach out for help when

Many around the world deeply care about your welfare and are committed to offering support.

Stay strong, and may peace and stability soon return to Afghanistan.

With hope and solidarity

Thank you SO much for supporting us!


I received an email this morning (July 5th) from the organisers:

"Due to predicted high winds which will make it unsafe to go ahead. The back up date in Saturday 14th September 2024".


Plan B is to do the 5k swim on Sunday, but in Sealanes, the fantastic Brighton beachside open air 50m pool meaning I will rack up 100 lengths to reach 5k 😅

Please help me get to the £1000 target as I will be swimming those 5k still!
