A man from Wrington is set to tell people in Congresbury next month about the experience he went through to complete a 21-mile swim across the English Channel.
Professor Andy Wolf, aged 63, was the oldest person to complete the challenge last year, which he did for charitable causes in the area.
He raised almost £19,000 for both the Bristol Children’s Hospital for its Paediatric Cardiac Surgical Unit and The Grand Appeal’s 3D Bio-Printing Unit.
Both use ground-breaking technology to revolutionise treatment for children with complex cardiac conditions.
Professor Wolf said: “I hope my story will inspire others to achieve their own goals while overcoming their fears of what is possible.”
The free talk is taking place at DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House in Frost Hill, on February 27 at 7.30pm.
