India’s Channel Swim for Charity

September 17, 2014

A selfless schoolgirl volunteered a week of her time to swim the equivalent to crossing the English Channel for charity.

India, a student at Haberdashers’ Monmouth School for Girls, endured a gruelling week of swimming around three miles a day to cover a total of 22 miles for Sue Ryder Care.

The 17-year-old, from Ledbury, raised roughly £600 through her Channel challenge, which will contribute towards her Duke of Edinburgh award.

She said: “It feels amazing to have done something for such a worthwhile cause – Sue Ryder Care is a fantastic charity that supports people living with life-limiting and long-term conditions.”
