Around 3 years ago, I was talking to my very dear friend Sue about having wanted to take part in the Great North Swim for years but had never had the confidence or the fitness to do it. At the time, this amazing lady who had always shown me so much love, support and encouragement, was battling with terminal breast cancer. I wanted to do something for her and decided I would do the Great North Swim in her name and raise money for a charity of her choice. I went home that day and signed up for the challenge the following summer. Then Covid struck and the Swim was cancelled. Fast forward 2 years and I’m all signed up again to take part on the 11th of June but heartbreakingly I will now be taking part in Sue’s memory. It was her wish for me to raise funds for an amazing local charity called ‘Active Against Cancer’ it was newly formed at the time and this wonderful group of people made a huge difference to Sue and continue to support many, many local people going through the most horrendous times. It breaks my heart that Sue will no longer be standing on the shores of lake Windermere cheering me on as she had planned to do but I hope I can still make her proud by taking part in her memory xxx
