For the month of June I’m going to attempt to swim 15km to raise money for Jigsaw youth mental health and the ISPCC.
I was lucky enough to work alongside jigsaw for a few fundraising events in the past and I really admire what they do. I also tried to pick charities that I haven't seen a lot of people my age donating to during covid-19. Mental health is more important now than ever and so too is a healthy relationship between young children and their parents/carers.
I chose to swim to do something different from the usual runs and cycles and also to give myself a bit of a challenge . I roughly set the goal to 500 euro however I will split whatever has been donated equally between the 2 charities on July 1st.
