We've Raised £1,000!!!!

An Update from Mary:

Thank you SO much to everybody for all of your kind donations to Throat Cancer Scotland and all of your wonderful words of support. I'm blown away that between us we managed to raise £1,000 so quickly. Let's keep going and see how much money we can raise for this wonderful charity.

I've started my treatment and I'm now on swim no.25!! Keep those messages of support coming and please share what I'm doing with anybody that might like to help Throat Cancer Foundation Scotland.

Here's my link an a lovely pic of a swim yesterday with Cath.  https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/marys-chilly-dip-1

Mary's Challenge

Mary has battled her way through many challenges - through her Army career, completing the Munros, MS and now a recent diagnosis of throat cancer. Being Mary, she's decided to help others by raising funds for Throat Cancer Foundation Scotland who've lost much of their income during Covid.

She's set herself the challenge of completing the Chilly 40 Swim Challenge . That's 40 outdoor cold water swims by 31st March 2021. She's got a team of friends on hand to help, ready to literally jump in if she needs a hand.

You can help...

  • By sponsoring her through this Crowdfunder.  
  • By sharing this with people that would also like to sponsor her
