Support Jamie's Swim Across The Channel (Update)

Cathie Shattock, who trains at the Avalon Lifestyle Centre at Farrington Golf and Country Club, is asking for people to come forward and support her husband’s swim across the English Channel.

Jamie Shattock will be setting off to Dover swim the 22 miles of English Channel to France this July, raising funds for three charities that mean a lot to Jamie and his family; The Lifetime Children’s Charity, Children’s Hospice South West and Bristol Children’s Hopsital’s Grand Appeal.

Jamie’s attempt last August had to be called off due to extremely bad weather conditions.  This year Jamie’s swim ‘window’ is between 7th and 14th July and he is third in a group of five people for that slot.

Jamie has been keeping his pool swimming up during the winter months, but started this season’s open water training in April this year by braving the 9 degrees water of Buldleigh Salterton and also Weymouth in South Devon and he has been doing this every weekend to date, swimming up to nine hours at a a time.
