Shirley Swimming Pool member Ashley Christopher completes charity swim!

Ashley Christopher, who has been a member at Shirley Swimming Pool since 2011, has finished his staggering 21 miles channel swim.

Attempting to raise money for The Society of Saint James, a Hampshire based homeless support group, ‘Ash’ (as he’s affectionately known here at Shirley Pool) decided to literally swim to France!

His charity campaign has been successful, having raised well over £3000, which will be put to good use by the Charity helping the less fortunate in and around Southampton.

We could not be more proud of Ash, and If you’d like to find out more about him, or The Society of Saint James, you can visit his Just Giving page here.

If you’ve been inspired and want to tackle a similar feat, you can find out more information on the Channel swim on their website.
