For writer and Folkestone mum-of-two, Jo Lamb, it was 75 swims:

‘Doing MAF’s 7&5 Challenge during lockdown was a lifesaver. I decided to swim in the sea 75 times during November and December, taking my final dip on New Year’s Eve. It was a celebratory end to MAF’s 75th anniversary in what was, a very challenging 2020. 'I’m chuffed to have raised over £1,500 for an amazing cause. Because I love sea swimming so much, I’ve carried on into 2021! If I can do it, anyone can. You will get a real boost from knowing that you’re making a difference to isolated communities around the world.’
