Idris swims to raise money for the homeless


When Idris Briggs (year 4) saw someone sitting on the ground outside some shops, his mummy explained that some people do not have homes to shelter them and keep them safe. Idris was upset, and wanted to do something to help, so Mummy explained about getting people to sponsor you to help raise money for charity.

“I decided to raise money by swimming. I used to be very frightened of the water, but two and a half years ago I set myself a challenge to overcome my fear. Now I feel safe in the water and I love swimming.
I have not yet swum a length on my own and wanted to challenge myself by swimming as far as I can, hopefully a whole length or more!
Idris raised a fantastic £445 for Centre Point!
