Done it!

I have suuccessfully completed the Swimathon 2021 5k (5000 metre) challenge, 200 lengths of Copeland Swimming pool, to raise money for Cancer Research UK and Marie Curie cancer care. Took two hours nine minutes. Tired but happy.

Thanks to those who have already sponsored me. Anyone else who wishes to do so can donate online via Justgiving by clicking on this link

Here are my swimming hat and medal for this year (I have quite a collection now:after doing this for 28 consecutive years)
