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!
