This week was a bit of a milestone on the fundraising efforts, as we passed the first £10,000 in sponsorship for the two charities I swum the channel for, and am attempting to swim it two-ways for. The original purpose of swimming the channel, was to try to raise a total of £50,000 for them. Hopefully, this donation is the first of what I hope will be a total of 5 £10,000 donations.
