About

I am the the chairperson for the 17th Barrow (St. Perran's) Scout Group.

Our Scout Group has to secure its running costs entirely from charitable gifts from parents and from the general public. Sometimes we cover costs, and other times we make a (hopefully small) loss.

We need a major fundraising campaign to raise enough money to replace our minibus, and some other significant projects to replace a water heater and rewire the heaters in the scout hut.

This is my page dedicated to raising money for the Scout Group, and in particular the Minibus.

I am extremely grateful to anyone who generously helps me raise this money.

Event details

Crazy Chairmans Challenge!

I am doing a sponsored swim as part of the Big Splash, to swim a crazy 135 miles! to support two charity appeals:
1) The 17th Barrow (St Perran's) Scout Group funds for minibus and water heater.
2) The restoration of the 135 year old bells of St James, Barrow-in-Furness (featured on a separate MyDonate web page)

I am no spring chicken!

I took part in the swimathon 2012 after 15 year gap! but 135 miles (or 217,261 metres) is a completely different challenge at over 8,690 lengths of the swimming pool instead of just 200!

I started my swim on 7th October 2011 and aim to finish by 25th July 2012, averaging about 30 lengths of the swimming pool every day for nearly 10 months. Progress can be seen at http://www.andy-jo.talktalk.net/SwimFitChallenge.html

Is it the Chairman or the Challenge that is Crazy?

I have set my target initially at 10% of the expected cost of a second hand minibus which should be reliable and last a good many years.

Can you help?
