£270raised of £1,000 target by 8 supporters

    Weʼve raised £270 to help build a monument at the former HMS Vernon to honour those involved in mine warfare, diving and bomb and mine disposal.

    Funded on Saturday, 24th November 2018

    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.


    My Daughter and I are swimming the Dart 10K on 16th September 2018. While we're at it we would like to raise some money for causes we believe in. I am raising money for the Vernon monument - I will be splitting my money raised with Cancer Research. Many thanks, any amount helps.

    well we did it in about 3 hours on the dot. Hoping to catch a few more pounds before the just giving page closes. I think I have about £210 here and £300 offline from friends. Hoping to double it to the £1000 within the next week or so.

    I am trying to add some pictures but the technology fails me or I fail it.

    I particularly enjoyed the Jelly baby stop on the second pontoon, I was ready to do the last 4 miles to Dartmouth but apart from not getting permission I think Suzy had had enough for her first big swim. Great effort.

    Cheers to all.

      Three times a week we are swim training at Blackpool Sands. Monday we did 6 widths which is about 3 miles, it was choppy and there was a swell. Today we did 4 widths or about 2 miles. I have ordered a new wetsuit as my old one is letting the water in! Its cold at this age! Serious ice-cream head when you first get it but then you acclimatise. 18days to go !
