Hooray for Jessica!

f69dfacf-fc0e-4f3b-b5a8-125a668ab203It’s not often that someone does something so incredible that you feel overwhelmed by admiration, but Jessica Hepburn has done that by swimming the Channel to raise funds for Infertility Network UK.

Jessica’s swim began at 1 am and just thinking about getting into an icy, dark English sea in the middle of the night makes me feel very unwell…  She swam all through the night, was stung by jellyfish, swept about by waves and the wash from container ships – and then carried on swimming all the next day. She was swimming while I slept warmly snuggled up under the duvet, was swimming when I got up and had a cup of coffee, swimming as I worked all morning, swimming when I stopped for lunch and was still swimming when I finished work. She finally reached the coast of France 17 hours and 44 minutes after setting off.

Just think of that cold water, those waves, those jellyfish – and keeping going for that long – and why not sponsor her to show how much you admire her amazing feat and to make it worth every moment in that icy water – https://www.justgiving.com/Jessica-Hepburn-INUK
