Raising money to fight diabetes

My Story

I’m taking part in this challenge because I love swimming. I have back problems and suffer terribly trying to manage the pain. Swimming and yoga are the two exercises that help. If by helping myself I can help others then that is fantastic. My family suffer with Diabetes, my brother's fiancé is type one, so if I can do something to help raise money to fund research then I will. The Swim22 Challenge supports people affected by diabetes. There are 4.7 million people living with diabetes in the UK, the complications of which lead to over 500 premature deaths every week. Support my challenge by hitting the donate button on my profile page.

Warm and sunny.


With the Prime Minister telling us that pools won't open next month, I am so glad that I have my 12ft pool. I managed a good tethered swim today and relaxed as well. 😎


Another swim closer to my goal. It was really cold today. I'm looking forward to the warmth promised next week. Got the chemicals just right as well... that's very satisfying.
