A BROTHER and sister duo from Porthmadog will be attempting to complete a 25- mile swim to raise money for charities close to their heart.
Nine-year-old Shaynna and her seven-year-old brother Keegan Bi-damour will be completing the challenge over a two-week period at Porthmadog’s Glaslyn Leisure Centre. Their proud mother, Heather Godfrey, said they have both been looking forward to the challenge and are working hard to raise as much money as they can for their three charities — the Wales Air Ambulance, Dewi Ward at Ysbyty Gwynedd and Anglesey’s Asperger and Autism Support Group.
She said: “I am so proud of Shaynna and Keegan, it’s great to see two kids so young become so passionate about raising money for charity.
“They chose the charities themselves, they were keen to raise money for the Wales Air Ambulance as their grandfather was flown to hospital by them after he’d suffered a motorbike accident so they felt they wanted to thank them for saving him.
“They also met a little girl last year who was from Canada, they met her while playing outside in Porthmadog and she suffers from autism.”
