- I've been swimming with COLSC since I was 9 years old and terribly miss training with all my friends. Not being able to feel the water like I normally would for months and months has had a huge impact on not just me, but my whole swim community too. My club is trying to raise money to get through this pandemic and I really want to help too! That's why my friends and I have decided to swim the length of the English channel in my garden pool... THAT'S A TOTAL OF 1416 LENGTHS!!!
Meet the team...
Francesca Harrison, Millie Hitchin, Ashton Simmonds, Izzy Porter and Emerson-Blu Gupwell will all be taking part to complete the challenge.
We aim to do this between the 6 of us over the course of so many days. My mum may even get in the pool too! It doesn't matter how we swim it. The only rule is we can't stop once it's our turn in the water. We wanted to do something that would really bring us back together as a team where we need to support each other and give one another encouragement.
We would all be so grateful if you can support us doing this by donating, which will then go towards COLSC crowdfund.
