After a brave attempt in treacherous conditions, the team had to abandon their first attempt. Weather and sea conditions became very dangerous.
Free Willies are planning to have another go in August. They are aiming for 17th-20th August with expectation that the weather will comply!

We are excited to announce that Anna and her friends, with team name of FreeWillies are fundraising for 1Voice with a challenge to swim the English Channel.
Their team name derives from the Free Willy movie/story of a killer whale that swims to freedom. This, in a roundabout way, encapsulates the freedom non-verbal people achieve when they have an augmentative or alternative way of communicating. Freedom of speech/communication.
Good luck to the swimmers. Watch this space for updates.
