iHV Fellow swims the English channel for charity

1st September 2016

iHV Fellow Karen Rees swims the English Channel to raise money for Macmillan Caring Locally because it is a great challenge and a lifelong ambition of her’s.

Karen says “I have always wanted to swim the English Channel and in my 50th year I thought it was about time I got on with it!  It has been a three year project of training and cold water acclimatisation and during the week beginning 26th August I set out wearing only a standard swimming cozzie, a hat and a pair of goggles from the beach in Dover and just kept swimming until I hit the nearest bit of France.  It took 17 hours and 13 minutes and I AM A CHANNEL SWIMMER! “. Well done Karen!

You can make your donation via her just giving page.
