And he's off!
Chris Bond, who is swimming the English Channel, in aid of the Oratory and its new heating system, is at the time of writing about to take the plunge. He writes,
"Swim Is ON! Start approx 0200 hrs tomorrow and throughout the day. Weather looking almost perfect so thank you for your prayers already. I’ve got someone to tell me when it’s about 12.40pm and I can sing Salve Regina with you all from the water!"
