Emma, a classmate and friend of Louie's wanted to support our charity, by embarking on a sponsored 10 mile swim which she aimed to finish in 10 days.

Determined to complete her challenge while she was aged 10, she clocked up the 10 miles in just 8 days and finished before her 11th birthday. In the process, she raised a massive £2006.82 for Louie's S.M.I.L.E.S.

We were presented with Emma's cheque at the end of term assembly, and this money went a long way to purchasing Christmas presents for Southampton and Salisbury children's wards.

Thank you very much Emma for your amazing support and for putting smiles on many children's faces this Christmas.
