Ange shared the success of her fundraising event with us in memory of her daughter Daisy.
“On the 2nd of January 2022 our youngest child Daisy would have celebrated her 16th birthday. We felt we needed to do something special to mark the occasion and with this in mind we decided we would like a new challenge to raise funds and awareness of group B Strep. Having started sea swimming in early 2021 we decided to do 16 sea swims/dips in her honour during the month of January.
Our first swim began on her birthday with just three of us going into the chilly waters of Eastbourne seafront! Over the course of the month with swims at sunrise and sunset, being joined by kids, pets and various home baked delights and the odd G&T our swimming group grew very quickly, the most we had swimming at one time was 20 people and have managed to raise £1840 so far.
We also noticed that a lot of people were also looking into group B Strep as most had never heard of it before so more awareness has been raised and will hopefully help to save tiny lives. “
