I am doing a sponsored swim for Wonder Years. My swim teacher told me to do 500 metres but I am pushing myself to do 1 kilometre non-stop and really hope you'll sponsor me. I will be swimming in the Olympic-size (50m long) pool at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre so that's 20 lengths to swim. The pool is about 2m deep so I won't be able to touch the bottom at all, not even at the ends!
I am doing this to go to The Gambia and build the last set of classrooms, I am very lucky to be going this year. We are going to witness the charity in action, meet some of the Gambians and see how they do scouting. It will be an amazing experience for us all.
