I’m raising money for the Chestnut Appeal for men’s health by donning my wetsuit and swimming across to Drake’s Island and back (the island behind me in the picture). Only 2 years ago the most swimming I could manage was ‘old lady breaststroke’ bobbing up and down in a pool, and I would never have thought of entering an event like this. However, after learning to do ‘proper swimming’ and swimming in the sea throughout the winter, I feel fairly confident I can make the distance, although 1.5km across a shipping lane and in a large group will be a challenge!
All money raised will go to the Chestnut Appeal and the fantastic work they do supporting men with cancer. Thank you for your support!
