Fundraising for Trees for Life by doing the Great North Swim
Rachel Belk (and friends)

I used to swim when a teenager, but haven't swum regularly for over 20 years. I must be slightly mad for having said yes to joining a group of friends planning to do the Great North Swim, but it's going to be an interesting challenge! We're raising money for a whole range of charities and I would be very grateful if you would support Trees for Life, a charity I've felt strongly about for at least 15 years. I love the idea of a grove that can expand with time - and we can go and visit it in the future if we want!
Love Rachel x
The donations total of £260 will plant a grove of 50 trees!.
(This includes the 8 trees planted and £50 received when this grove was set up).

Well done Rachel, I'm sure the trees will be very grateful that you swallowed half of the Manchester Ship Canal for them.
For a very good cause, and for a brave friend raising lots of money doing a crazy swim!
Good luck Rach, you'll do it easily! We'll be thinking of you on saturday as we bask on the sofa! Lots of Love Claire & Fede xxx
Good luck - we'll be thinking of you all

Swim for the trees! Good luck. x River
Good luck! It sounds a marvellous charity, we so love seeing the native woods when visiting Scotland. William
What a fabulous Charity - but if you think you're mad for doing this swim, I must be truly bonkers! Sheila
I hope you have your boxing gloves at the ready! Gareth
Good luck, daughter no.1. here's hoping Windermere will be as calm as last time we were on it. xx
