I'm taking on the challenge of a two mile swim in the Serpentine in London to help raise funds for the great work the Royal Life Saving Society provides.

From teaching water safety in schools through to training lifeguards, the society provides a vital service to help raise awareness and support people in enjoying the water in a safe way.

I'm looking forward to tackling the two mile swim on the 14th Sept, and frantically training before hand - if you want to support my challenge, any amount you can give is greatly appreciated. Mark Barham
