In August of this year six Leicester Neptune swimmers will be swimming from Dover to Calais as a relay in an attempt to swim the English channel and raise as much money as they can for Aspire.
Aspire is a charity which raises hundreds of thousands each year for people with life changing spinal injuries.
Those taking part are : Umer Hashim, Charlie Goddard, Katie Kirk, Maciej Mosiolek, Kate McCallister and Sam McCallister.
This challenge entails a 21 mile swim, overcoming 14-18 degree temperatures (Evington is 28 degrees) as well as potentially choppy waters, not to mention jellyfish.
The team has already raised £3,300 for Aspire however if they are to reach the £12,000 target set by the swimmers, any money you’re willing to donate would be greatly appreciated by the team!
