Caroline takes the plunge again for charity

Monday, May 26, 2014 - 12:09

A POSTWOMAN from the Isle of Wight, who aims to swim The Solent, hopes to deliver the goods for the national spinal injury charity, Aspire.
Caroline Soal, of Player Street, will be the only Islander to join a team of swimmers, who aim to reach Ryde Sands from Gosport on July 19.
It will not be the 38 year old’s first charity swim for Aspire.
Caroline, who is not a member of any swimming club on the Island, earned the charity’s stamp of approval when she did a three-mile lake swim in Snowdonia in 2010.
She said: "I’m thrilled to be raising money for this particular charity because they help people live life to the full after suffering a spinal cord injury.
"Every eight hours in the UK someone sustains a spinal cord injury and is told they may never walk again.
"Aspire not only helps with equipment, such as wheelchairs and computers, it has also set up a housing programme.
"This is such a great challenge for me and something I’ve always aspired to do."
To support Caroline, you can donate online by logging on to www.justgiving.co.uk/caroline-soal.
