About my fundraising
Why at my age have I decided to swim the 1.3 miles from Hurst Castle to Colwell Bay? To support West Wight Sports and Community Trust who require the funds donated to continue their good work. Also to commemorate the loss of two dear friends, Pete Wade and Tony Wilson by donating an additional percentage of the amount raised for the above for their two charities, Macmillan Cancer Support and The Alzheimer's Society.
P.S. When you make a donation, don't forget to check the Gift Aid box if you're a UK taxpayer as then your charity can claim an extra 25% from the government!
* Gift Aid amount shown is not included in the appeal total and is dependent on confirmation from HMRC.
** Pledges are not included in the total until they are paid.
The transactions listed on this page may not add up to the total shown at the top. It is not always possible to display all transactions.
