    Weʼve raised £1,500 to ‘give something back’ in memory of our Dad ♥️

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Our Dad, Philip, sadly passed away in September 2017. He lived the last two years of his life at Resthaven - a local residential home in Exmouth. The staff there were exceptional in giving him, and all the other residents, exceptional care and compassion.

    Philip was an accomplished competitive swimmer & in his teenage years and early twenties, he won many cups and medals representing Devon. He incredibly won the local Starcross to Exmouth swim a record six times, first at the age of 13, & he maintained the record of 6 firsts in the race for forty years.

    His dedication to a sport he loved inspired us as children (Clive my brother & I) to swim competitively ourselves. Now in our fifties he has inspired us again in attempting the Starcross to Exmouth swim for us - the first time - in Dads memory. The swim covers 3 miles of open tidal water on the River Exe, we have been training for the swim for several months - from an exhausting attempt at 10 lengths to now swimming 100-150 lengths 2-3 times a week. Phew!

    Funds raised will support Resthaven in in Dad's memory with something extra for the residents. For us, this is giving something back to say a huge ‘thank you’ for all their consistent care and kindness & will help with much needed equipment in the new garden area.

    Thank you for reading & if you decide to contribute, no matter how small, we really appreciate your kind donation.

    Clare and Clive xx
