Zannah's challenge: 100 minutes of swimming (without arm bands!)

Zannah has a special connection to Guide Dogs, as she is visually impaired herself.

A true swimming super star and inspiration, Zannah swam for 100 minutes without arm bands. Friends and family all supported her challenge and helped Zannah raise over £700 for her challenge on JustGiving.  

“Zannah had lots of fun doing her swim as she loves swimming and is like a little mermaid” - Zannah’s Mum Angie.

 

There are lots of ways to fundraise - a great place to start is by setting up an online giving page and joining the campaign. Start fundraising with Just Giving today.
