Tim Street from Long Newnton will be swimming 22 miles (or 1,416 lengths of a 25m pool) which is the equivalent of the English Channel, to raise money for people who have been paralysed by Spinal Cord Injury. In the UK this happens three times a day.
You can follow his progress on the Aspire website leaderboard via www.aspirechannelswim.co.uk ....go to... the tab headed 'The Challenge' drop down to 'individual leaderboard', click, and at the base type in 'Tim Street'. The amounts swum and raised should then appear. Currently he is 6 miles out of Dover harbour and hopes to reach Calais, good health permitting, a week earlier than scheduled!
The amounts raised on the leaderboard include offline pledges which may be redeemed at various stages, so if you would like to pledge a donation please let him know by email. Amounts given now, or later payment of pledges can be made directly to Just Giving with or without 'Gift Aid' via the https://justgiving.com/timstreetaspire135 link which is shown on his 'challenge page'. If you Google Tim Street Swimming, it should take you directly to the Just Giving page.
Any contribution however small will be greatly appreciated.
