Congratulations to fundraisers of the month, Ripples Aqua School.  The team of seven - Finnuala, Jack, Joe, Aaron, Jamie, Jonathan and Aleida - took part in the Aspire Channel Swim 2013, crossing the Channel over six times and raising an amazing £3,130.40 for Aspire!

The money raised by this swim school from Downpatrick, County Down, could pay for a lightweight wheelchair and a laptop, to enable someone with a spinal cord injury to regain their independence.

“We loved the Aspire Channel Swim, especially being able to raise awareness of the work Aspire does.  Everyone loved having a challenge that our new swim school could work towards, it brought all the swimmers together and made us a stronger team.  We would do it again in a heartbeat.  It was such a good cause and a great excuse to get fit and take time out from everyday life.”
