Help me go to the Ice Swimming World Championship

Donation protected
I'm Fenwick Ridley, and I'm an Ice swimmer.
This time last year I got selected for the 4th World champs but didn't manage to go due to concerns on covid.
This time I have been Re-selected for TeamGB to represent GB at the IISA Ice Swimming World Championships held in Samoens in France from January 12th to 15th.
It's not easy being an athlete during this time with the big costs floating around the events and really there is 3 winter events I'm trying to go to this winter but this is the most expensive.

I'm Entering swim events :

100m IceFly
50m IceFly
250m Freestyle
500m Freestyle
1000m Freestyle

I am insanely excited about this chance to swim and represent GB.
Never thought I would get this far in my swimming and feel so lucky to be at this point.
So I'm training really hard right now.

It's been extremely expensive so far for the whole mission as I'm funding it all my self.

Swim Entrys
Medical & ECG
Branded kit
Airport Taxie 1
Airport taxie 2

It comes to around £1500+

Support in any way possible would be immense and contributing would go a long way.

Me and jen and moona just moved into our new home after getting eviction and then had to work a little harder to make things work out, so yeah money is tight.

But it's a dream to be picked to represent GB and possible come back with a record maybe ?

In all honesty it was really hard to make this funding page but realistically I'm not sure I would be able to do this every year without a full paid sponsor BUT I'm 100% going to this even if it's scraping the barrel.

So any help will go so so far

Thanks for reading...
