Cumbrae to Largs swim for Gillian's Saltire Appeal

My lovely wife Claire is swimming from the island of Cumbrae to Largs on September 14th to raise money for Gillian's Saltire Appeal, a local charity which raises money for respite care for cancer sufferers, their families and carers in Ayrshire and elsewhere in Scotland. The following is her reasons for doing so:

Far too many people these days are affected by cancer and any charity trying to alleviate the pain and stress by family members needs to be commended and supported. I am doing this swim because my mother, my sister and sister-in-law have all been cancer sufferers, thankfully all have survived. My mother-in-law is currently in the process of giving cancer a kick in the ass. Gillian's Saltire Appeal cannot help my family, but I can totally appreciate what they are doing to support families in Ayrshire. So please dig deep and donate now.
