As many of you know I cared for my Grandad until he moved into a care home in 2010.
On 8th June, my lovely, lovely husband has set himself the HUGE challenge of swimming the full length of Lake Windermere in the beautiful Lake District, to raise money for Alzheimer's Society.
The lake is approx 10.5 miles long and up to 225ft deep
He has been doing, and continues to do, loads of training - and this will soon become even more as the weather gets better and the evenings get lighter.
We have put in lots and lots of planning to make sure he will be as safe as he possibly can be, and still have lots more to do.
I plan to use this thread to update on how we're doing, how we get on on the day, and how the fundraising is going.
We have set up an online sponsorship page at www.justgiving.com/owen-chapple
If anyone feels able to spare a few ££'s to support him and help us raise vital funds for the charity, we'd be so grateful
