Hi East Croydon Cool followers,
When I set up this platform it was purely to promote all the great things going on in Croydon. It was not for personal posts like this BUT my various attempts at fundraising for this incredible charity have all taken a hit due to Corona so I’m hoping you’ll let me off this once?! (especially as I found a way to tie it in to Croydon!)
In a couple of weeks, I’ll be attempting to swim the Channel as part of a 6 person relay.
I’m not an especially sporty person (!) so this 22 mile swim across the world’s busiest shipping lane (minus a wetsuit) is set to be quite the challenge.
Our team will be raising money for Aspire, a charity that provides practical help to people who have been paralysed by spinal chord injury; supporting them from injury to independence.
Whilst training has been difficult due to pool closures, organising fundraising events (during lockdown and social distancing) has been just as tricky.
So I’m hoping to get a bit closer to my target by holding ‘The Cronx Lucky DIP’. Dip: see what we did there 😉
Simply donate £5 to my Just Giving page and leave the comment ‘The Cronx Lucky Dip’ to be entered into a prize draw to win a range of treats from some brilliant businesses across Croydon!
