Em’s Big Pembrokeshire Swim for SWANSEA BAY ASYLUM SEEKERS SUPPORT GROUP on MyDonate

A note from Emily, who is going to do a sponsored swim on 3rd August 2017 to raise money for Unity in Diversity (UiD) and SBASSG.

See below for details:

“In two weeks time, I’m going to take on my biggest swim challenge yet:  22 miles around the Pembrokeshire coast. From Amroth to Freshwater East, finishing back at Swanlake Bay.

I’m raising money for 2 fantastic organizations: Unity in Diversity (UiD) and Swansea Bay Asylum Seekers Support Group (SBASSG), that provide friendship, support, advice and services to people who have fled their homes and are seeking refuge in the UK.

I’m swimming in loving memory of two friends who were instrumental in motivating me to swim but tragically died last September. Rache Dougherty, my closest childhood friend, and Russ Ward who coached me first to do the Solent and then the Channel relay.

This swim is a big deal for me as I’ll be swimming round all the tricky headlands and rocky outcrops, through Caldey Sound and past military artillery zones. And the Pembrokeshire sea is swarming with jellyfish at the moment.

But I’m spurred on by the great work of UiD and SBASSG, and from the ongoing inspiration from Rache and Russ whose positivity and encouragement are still great drivers in my life.

Dan will kayak alongside me. He’s hoping to catch fish along the way and cook up fresh mackerel on a fire in the evenings. Yum.

Please, please sponsor me

I will be keeping a blog to let you know of my progress: http://jellyfishjemboree.co.uk/

If anyone would like to join us in swimming, kayaking or just enjoying the Pembrokeshire coast, do get in touch…. http://jellyfishjemboree.co.uk/about/

Love,

Emily”
