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 fiancée 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.

Thanks to my Mum for donating the 80m that she managed in her unheated outdoor pool today. 😁


Really pleased with my Km today. There was great energy in the pool today and I pushed myself. Couldn't have managed can't more though as my elbow was aching.


Really pleased to be back in the pool and getting stronger again. Had to cut my swim short today to be in to take delivery of my replacement credit card machine...hey hi maybe another km on Monday 🤩
