A Final Push

by Michael Ford last modified 12 Sep, 2020 09:47 PM

Our Aquadeacon is on the final stretch of her epic swim to raise money for a spinal injuries charity.

The Archdeacon of Wilts, Sue Groom, planned the 6.5 km swim before lockdown but could only get a little practice.

Post-lockdown in mid May, Archdeacon Sue has been making a 2-hour round trip to the swimming lake where she swims for 2 hours, 3 times a week.

She says:

"On Sunday I managed to swim 5 km in the lake for the very first time and this afternoon, in glorious sunshine, I swam another 3.4 km. I now feel fit enough to tackle the 6.5 km on the river Arun in just 12 days' time.

"Thank you very much to all those who have already been so generous in sponsoring me. So far you have donated £750 towards my target of £1,000.

"If you have not sponsored me yet and are able to do so, please give to help Aspire support those with spinal injuries. Thank you."

Please donate here.
