About my fundraising
Yes I should know better, but on Sunday 15th July 2012 I will be swimming the Solent from Hurst Castle to Colwell Bay. This is the second Wild West Solent Swim and the aim is to raise funds for the West Wight Sports Centre Charity - the charity that provides sports facilities in Freshwater. Support me if you can please. Thank you. Mike
