    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 charity.

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


    In December 2017 I found out my good friend and openwater swimming buddy Jody had been diagnosed with bowel & liver cancer. Jody is 39 years old and has two gorgeous young girls Elsa & Maddie. She spent part of Christmas in hospital undergoing surgery to remove a large section of bowel and is currently recieving chemotherapy. She has a long journey ahead including further surgery & is determined to beat this vile disease.

    Jody was due to swim the English Channel in August this year but is now unable so myself and 5 others are going to swim it for her. 3 weeks later I plan to complete Ironman Vichy (2.4 mile swim/112 mile bike/26.2 mile run) in under 16 hours. My goal is to raise as much money as I can to enable Jody and her family to have a well deserved break together when she has completed her treatment.

    Please please can i ask you to sponsor me so that i can help this amazing family to start a new chapter.

        Di and Nick, Best of luck. You have both trained so hard for this and both deserve to do really well. Can't wait to catch up later in the year to celebrate.

        Best of luck to you Diane (and Nick). A fantastic reason for undertaking these challenges. We, of course know and love Jody at Swim Heron and look forward to seeing her for more long swims in 2019.
