About

I'm a 50 year old grandmother who decided to swim the channel and Decided to raise the money for a locally based charity

Every penny donated will go directly to help fund research into Triple Negative Breast Cancer and to pay for holistic therapy treatments to help those going through the cancer journey in our local Crewe and Nantwich area.

Event details

ONE ARM AT A TIME SWIMMING THE CHANNEL SOLO

In 2016 I was part of a channel relay attempt to swim the channel. We didn't make it so for some very strange reason I decided to give it another go but this time solo,  So after months of training, many hours swimming and the successful completion of a 6 hour qualifier in water less than 16 degrees in temperature, sometime between 5-7 September, I will leave the beach at samphire hoe and in the following 15-20 hours I will hopefully land on a beach in France.
I would love it if you could make even the smallest contribution towards the charity I want to try to raise money for, from my swim.
