Well someone special really made my day today. The one and only Justin Osmond kindly sent me a personal email of support, telling me he was cheering me on in spirit. How nice is that?! I smiled all the way through my 123rd mile today!
As I said yesterday, I ‘swam through’ my home town of Chester-le-Street. I happened to mention this on the Chester-le-Street Then and Now Facebook page and this morning I was contacted by the Coach of the CLS Swimming Club asking me if I would like to swim with them this weekend whilst I am in the area! Sadly it’s a little late to organise it as a fundraising event, but they are offering support if I would like to go back and swim with them again. How generous it that?!
As I approach the second half of the 250 miles, I am working on a ‘Swim a Mile with Me’ project to help boost the fundraising total but more about that soon. I am really excited about it!!
I am also excited that tonight, the current total raised is over £300. I wonder if I could stand with a bucket in the middle of Newcastle city centre on Saturday afternoon and collect some more. Hmm now there’s an idea. Note to self: contact Newcastle City Council tomorrow and ask for permission 🙂 🙂
