With all corporate sponsorship now in place, courtesy of Dovetail, Hallmark Hulme, Kendall Wadley, Rybrook Worcester, and Spire Southbank, I now want to heavily focus on closing in on the £10,000 for Acorns.
My current total will stand at £5,500 once the final monies from the Dovetail Bake Sale have been allocated to the pot. What I need now is for everyone to really begin to network and to spread the word.
This swim is no longer in the distant future - it's happening the month after next!
If you know anyone in media - radio, TV, newspaper - please make them aware of this event. Swimming the Channel is a HUGE task, and I really do think that £10,000 is not a vast amount to raise within the Three Counties for something of this magnitude. I cannot find reference to anyone else having done it, so it does seem to be the first attempt from our region.
Please also feel free to point people directly to my JustGiving page.
Thanks in advance.
