Charity Swim

David Walliams arrived at Abingdon yesterday evening, to a welcoming reception from around 1000 people, all gathered around the lock. Never seen the towpath so busy.

This morning, his support boat woke us up, and he swam past at 7:15am. Local radio reports say he's picked up a bad case of "Thames Tummy" (symptoms including: high temperature, vomiting, and the squits). Swimming in the "dirty old river", he also risks getting E-Coli, Salmonella and Hepatitis. Brave man.
