Six year old Jonathan swims to raise money for diabetes

Jonathan is 6 years old and loves to swim so he’s raising money for diabetes charity, Diabetes UK, by swimming half a kilometre. Diabetes is close to Jonathan’s heart as his gran and other family members have type 1 diabetes.

Jonathan wanted to raise money by swimming in July’s Swim for All event in Wakefield, however, as Jonathan is only six, he cannot take part in the event. Unhindered, Jonathan has arranged to do his bit by swimming the 500m distance at his local swimming baths.

We take our hats off to Jonathan for his caring and persistence!
