Started on 26th August 2021 Edinburgh, UK
Help Save the Children 

In aid of Save the Children International’s Afghanistan Appeal, I will swim 1 metre in the freezing open water off the coast of Scotland for every £1 donated on this page. So if we raise £1000 I will swim 1000 metres (about 0.6 miles) … but I think I can swim further than that… don’t you?

The route 

Swim route is along the epic Yellowcraig beach made famous by Robert Louis Stevenson and the Fidra island lighthouse about 1000 metres off the coast in the chilly North Sea.   


How much to give?

No amount is too little. Every donation means a little more in the fund (and a little further to swim). The swim (or I might have to kayak it if you donate enough) will take place at the end of August 2022 in the North Sea between Yellowcraig and Fidra. So dig (or dive) deep lovely people.

Thank you.
