Becky Page taking a well-earned rest after completing her charity swim.

A Snettisham woman has swum the equivalent of the English Channel for charity – almost exactly 10 years after she first took on the very same challenge.

Becky Page, 20, completed the Aspire Channel Swim 2019, raising £320 for Aspire, a charity which helps people with spinal cord injuries.

She used the swimming pool at the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) in Bircham Newton to complete her challenge.

The challenge involves swimming 22 miles over 12 weeks to raise money for the charity but she completed the distance in just six days.

Miss Page, who is the manager of an ice cream and sweet shop in Hunstanton, first undertook the challenge in November 2009, aged just 11.

“I found it harder this time as I decided to do it in a lot shorter time period which meant swimming a lot further in each session,” said Miss Page.

She was inspired to do it again when a close family friend was helped by the charity following an accident.

“I hope doing this challenge has helped raise awareness of the charity and the work they do and will encourage more people to take on the challenge next year,” she added.
