Beth's GAW covid impact fund - Tokyo challenge
We did it
On 8th May 2021 we successfully raised £422 with 20 supporters in 47 days

I’m doing the Tokyo challenge, raising funds for Gateshead and Whickham swim club to replace income we normally make from our own galas.

1616967739_fb_img_1614557008813.jpgDue to covid, my swimming club hasn't been able to run its home galas. This has meant we have not been able to make money which helps to pay for pools and coaches. We would like to raise £16,000 to replace this money. 

During the Easter holidays, I will be walking, cycling and swimming to clock up miles.  The challenge is that together as a club we will travel the 5,766 mile distance from Gateshead to Tokyo, the venue for this year’s Olympics. Me and my mam are aiming to do 125miles between us. 

It would be great if you could sponsor me or buy a reward from the page to help us meet our target. 

Thank you for looming at my page, Beth x
