Elly Swam the Channel ...

... well, sort of.

I undertook the Macmillan Cancer Support SWIM IT 2022 Challenge swimming 22 miles (35.4 km) – the equivalent distance as swimming the Channel – but one-mile-at-a-time in my local swimming pool. I love swimming but this was still quite a challenge for me. A mile is 1600m/64 lengths! I started the challenge on 29th June 2022 – and completed it on 2nd September 2022! An enormous thank you to everyone who donated and helped me exceed my fundraising target.

The charity, Macmillan Cancer Support, have helped so many people – including several of my friends. It's not too late to donate. Please click here to help Macmillan continue supporting people who are living with cancer. My fundraising page is open until 31st December 2022. Thank you so much.
