Charlie and Luke

Last weekend..8th, 9th, 10th May.. Charlie and his swim buddie Luke Myers (both 9 years old)again took to the water for the benefit of others, on this occasion they were swimming to raise funds for the Prostate Cancer Charity..on each of the days they swam 50 laps of the 33 metre pool at Billingham. At the same time Lukes dad Tim rode the English coast to coast cycle ride.
To date they have raised almost £5000 on their justgiving page.

An article appeared in a local newspaper yesterday you can see it here. I will post the photographs once we get the copyright sorted. Suffice to say they did a great job and we are very proud of their efforts. Well done boys.

Hi Mark
The kayak seems great, although we haven't had chance to take it out on water yet. It's really quick to inflate and is really solid when it's all inflated. I got mine from:
We can't carry one on the car, so it's perfect.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the good wishes over at SwimMikeSwim. Bummer about not getting a chance to swim. That's nightmare, but I am first in my window, so I'm hopeful.

Is 2010 a go?
