swimming to fundraise for epilepsy society
Watch actress Jennie Jacques' Swim Serpentine journey
I was taking a break from learning my lines for Vikings in a cafe in London and as I scrolled through Instagram I noticed a post from Epilepsy Society saying last chance to enter the one mile open-water swim. I entered on impulse because I felt helpless. My sister had recently been in hospital for her epilepsy. When my muscles felt like they were giving in I just thought of the strength of a person who has epilepsy and how brave they are every day and I was totally inspired and motivated to keep going with the biggest smile.
