"And why are we doing this? Anyone who knows me well, knows I love a challenge! But we really wanted to make a real difference to our local community and so decided to nominate a charity.
We chose to support Lucky2behere and raise money for Skye's local charity. They do such amazing work across Scotland and have been born from the seed of an idea. We also wanted to support our local school, MacDiarmid Primary School, where we are parents and teachers alike, as they relay heavily upon parent fundraising and support. So, the money raised from this event will be split equally between Lucky2behere and MacDiarmid Primary School.
Training has already begun, we are working very hard, not only to train but to find the time to fit everything in around our families and jobs.
PLEASE support us....you will find us on Facebook where you can click the link to our Just Giving Page. We shall regularly update our page with photos, videos and diary blogs of our training and preparation so that you know exactly what we're up to and can be part of this amazing challenge. I hope this will be the start of a few endurance swimming challenges, so lets make this one work! Help us to make a difference to our local community.
