We'd like to give a gold medal thank you to swimming superstar Lily, who bravely swam a whole two miles to support our work. She completed this mammoth challenge in an exhausting 1hour 17mins!
Inspired by her marathon running mum, 10-year-old Lily said that she wanted to do something to help other children. "The challenge was very tiring on the second mile and it felt like it took forever!"
So far she's raised an amazing £165, with donations still coming in. Thank you so much, Lily - this shout-out is for you!
