7:25am 30th November 2013
A schoolgirl from Weymouth has managed to raise nearly £2,000 for charity after someone close to her was diagnosed with breast cancer.
12 year-old Sophie Moore from Budmouth College will be swimming the length of the English Channel at Weymouth Swimming Pool in under two weeks time, she'll start on Thursday the 12th of December and aims to complete the 22 miles over the weekend.
She's already been sponsored by many people, her current Just Giving webpage total is £1, 943, and the final total Sophie raises after the swim will go to 'Against Breast Cancer' charity.
Wessex FM spoke to Sophie who admitted she was 'a little nervous' but that 'everyone has been very supportive.'
