Two days to go…. Swimathon for Joy Clinic!

Dear Friends of St James

Only two days to go before my swim to raise money to continue building a clinic for St James!

Thanks to all of you who have already received this email and have offered to sponsor my swim on Saturday. Please consider it if you have not yet done so. I hope you can help. Please read on……

Last Wednesday night I was invited to go to meet the Stockport Rotary Lamplighters and introduce them to my project at St James. They are very interested and want to book me for a presentation in a few months time when they have a free slot.

During the evening they were discussing the Swimathon to be held at Stockport Grammar School on 7th March to raise money for their favourite charities. I was asked if I would like to join one of their teams as they were short of numbers and that if I did I could keep any money I raised through sponsorship. So I am contacting all my friends to ask if you will once again please support St James by sponsoring me!

The Swimathon is on all day but I am on the 1.30 slot where I will join three others to swim as many lengths as we can in 55 minutes. I have no idea who the other swimmers are or how fast they swim so don’t know how many lengths I am likely to swim. If you are able to sponsor me it is probably best to do it for a set amount.

If you would like to know more please look at the Stockport Lamplighters Rotary website.

I will attaché my email and photos about Joy Clinic.

I look forward to hearing from you and to seeing you at Izzi’s wedding!


Love Gerry
