Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On June 1st, I set a monthly target for my regular swimming sessions, just for fun.This was 25,000metres (1,000 lengths of the local pool) per month.

It turned out to be easy, so I set a bigger challenge...and this time to raise donations for Macmillan Cancer Support.....

New target.....a QUARTER OF A MILLION metres (TEN THOUSAND lengths), before 14th December.

I'm suggesting a donation of either a fixed amount, or, for each day completed ahead of schedule an amount per day. So, if it's achieved with 20 days to go, and you would like to donate 10p/day, that would be just £2.

Please pass on the link to my page to anyone you think might be interested in donating to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Why?

Thankfully, most of us will never need Macmillan's support.

 Unfortunately, most of us are likely to know someone who does, or will.
