Charity swim

Hi, I said I would post with info about the charity swim in aid of Headway and its 13 days away so better had. Its on Sunday 8th September at Anglian water in Rutland county, Its going to be a real challenge for me, I've opted to swim 500mts and is mainly about building my confidence and proving I can do more than sit and watch TV and knit or read and if I can raise a little money for headway on the way all the better. I have a fundraising page on Virgin Money Giving the link is: uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Ja...

don't feel obliged to donate, your good wishes are quite sufficient. Its quite exciting as I haven't done anything like this before, will ask my husband to post photos as I'm no good at that. Wish me luck
