This evening we're sharing details of an incredible swim that our brilliant Funding Manager is training hard for to raise funds for Stripey Stork! Emma is going to swim a mile in Lake Windermere with @great_swim as part of the Great North Swim, which is the equivalent of swimming 64 lengths in a standard swimming pool! We're incredibly proud of her, and of course we'd like to encourage you all to sponsor her too!
Her Local Giving page is here and this is what she has to say about what she's doing ( Link in bio above): http://bit.ly/2qPF82X "On 9th June this year I am going to swim a mile in Lake Windermere as part of the Great North Swim, and hopefully raise lots of money for Stripey Stork. Can you help me reach my target?
Did you know that 10% of children in Surrey live in poverty? And that an estimated 24,000 girls and women have been the victim of domestic abuse?
It’s hard to believe that in our well-to-do corner of the world there are still people who aren’t able to give their children even the basic things they need, and deserve.
By supporting Stripey Stork you're doing something to make these family’s lives easier. Mums like Sarah, who received a Stripey Stork delivery when she was living in a hostel after the birth of her daughter and who says "I will never forget what they did for me.” Thank you #TeamStork, Emma will appreciate every penny you can spare and so will we! #greatnorthswim #swimmer #swimming #swim #fundraising #fundingmanager #babybank #surrey #reigate #redhill #merstham #localcharity #gratitude
