“I managed to swim on all 31 days and had LOTS of very cold and rainy ones. I still managed to get my head under water and do proper strokes every time. On my last swim lots of my friends from school came to swim with me and cheer me on. I have raised £462 for Sightsavers and am going to have a rest from swimming now!”
After seeing a Sightsavers advert, Lily challenged herself to walk from Lands End to Plymouth in just 10 days to fundraise for Sightsavers. She was joined by her sister Frances and springer spaniel Billie, camping along the 154 mile route. She said:
Turns out the coast path is incredibly hilly! In a way I’m glad it was really tough as the feeling after the 10 days was so much better – I was really proud. We saw some really nice places though and the campsite side of it I enjoyed! People we met along the way were really supportive and we got some cash donations just through talking to people.
