Around 700 people drown in the UK and Ireland every year and many more suffer injury, some life changing, though non-fate experiences.
I am fundraising to promote awareness of water safety and drowning prevention, being a Rlss Qualified lifeguard for several years and living in a seaside town; water safety is very important to me. My aim is to make many aware, of how to stay safe in and around the water especially coming into the summer months as many flock to our beaches and pools. I also aim to raise funds for the RLSS to continue running courses such as pool and open water lifeguard qualifications and to continue promoting water safety! Megan Courtman
