Vicky said, “If you know me you’ll already know this, if you don’t let me confirm… I’m not a swimmer, at all! I went swimming for the first time in years a few weeks ago and I can confirm I hack my way up and down the pool. September is Alzheimers awareness month, there are an increasing number of dementia diagnosis in the UK and Coventry, Solihull & Warwickshire (in particular) reflect this increase. Many of us have been affected by dementia and if my #swimmingdowndementia fundraises to help us understand more about and look for a cure for this cruel disease then it is more than worth it.”
