About my fundraising
I decided to do the Solent Swim in order to help our local Sports and Community Centre. The Centre is independently run and is a vital hub for the whole community in the west of the Island. In addition to the pool, which I tend to use most, there are various other sports facilities and other activities for all ages that take place during the week.
I have been training hard since September 2018 and can now swim 100 lengths of the pool. (Equivalent to one and a half miles approx.) When I started I could barely do more than a couple of lengths of Crawl. I am sure I will be able to do the Solent Swim which is about one and a quarter miles in length.
Also I will be 60 years old this year and decided that I should celebrate this milestone in a rather different way.
So please sponsor me - many thanks if you do and if you decide not to thanks for looking at this page.
