Her family tried their best to save her. She was pulled from the water and on to a support boat by her brother David and her husband, Stephen, was also on board.
She had a Facebook page Create A Ripple Channel Swim through which she was attempting to raise money for Rainbows Hospice and Diabetes UK.

As more than 2,000 people have donated to Mrs Taylor's fundraising page making the current total to more than £40,000.
