To help send a wheelchair sports team to the NVA Wheelchair Games in Portland, Oregon, USA in July 2020.

I'm an ex-Services wheelchair athlete and plan to swim the distance of the English Channel in stages at our local indoor pool in Portree, Isle of Skye. I will be doing this challenge using only my arms (my legs don't work !!) without the aid of any floats or aids. The challenge will begin on 1 October 2019 and I shall be swimming 1416 lengths of Portree swimming pool in stages, aiming to finish on 24 December 2019. All monies raised will help to pay the many expenses incured by sending ex-Forces Wheelchair Athletes to the NVA Wheelchair Games in July of 2020.

Let's make 'Swim the distance of the English Channel' happen
