Esta is approaching every school in the Worcester area she has any dealings with, but if you know any schools (or businesses!) who may benefit from an educational/promotional talk, please do let me (and them) know. I will cover the concept of commitment, and how something like a Channel swim takes a year's worth of hard work and training. I'll also talk about Acorns, of course, including what they do, and why I'm subsequently taking on such an insane challenge - considering I'd never swum further than 2km when I came up with the notion of taking on the Everest of open water swims!
I am also due to hold a stall at one or two school fetes in the next few weeks, complete with a collection bucket and happily handing out flyers.
If anyone can think of any other promotional or fundraising ideas, please do get in touch.
