Tom ‘Chippy’ Williams and Ash Buck will swim the channel (in a pool) on Monday April 5th (bank holiday Monday) starting at 6am.
The English Channel is the busiest in the world…so thats why the boys are doing it in a pool!They will be swimming the equivalent of 22miles (35.5km), but in a relay format, doing a mile each then swapping over (11 miles each). This works out at 1,420 lengths of the pool between them. (710 lengths each.)
They hope to do this in under 10hrs. It’s going to do this in one hit no mucking about, just 10hrs solid.
So find your bucks and ‘chip’ in for charity, a gigantic effort for a great cause. Donations can be made to Ash or Tom directly or via their justgiving page www.justgiving.com/leestockswim
08/04 – update, the lads finished in an excellent time of 8 hours 16 minutes and 32 seconds, raising over £1200 for a very worthy cause. Congratulations and thanks to the pair from all at LeeStock and especially the Willow Foundation.
