Campaign: To highlight the importance of children learning to swim

My dad passed away last year – he’s the one who really got me into swimming.

I started when I was four and as I grew older I had dreams of competing in the Olympics. At one point, I was training 20 hours a week.

But then a coach told me I’d never make it and my confidence took a hit.

That’s when my attention turned to teaching this vital skill.

I’m working with Fixers to encourage parents to make sure their children learn the basics of swimming.

I believe everyone should know how to swim. It not only keeps you fit, it could also save your life.
