    Funded on Saturday, 8th September 2018

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Fred had a huge impact at Swim England, British Swimming and in so many individual's swimming lives throughout his career. He is greatly missed already and so in memory of him we would like to raise funds to donate to two charities very close to both his and his family's hearts.

    National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society aim to provide information and support for people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), their families, friends and carers, as well as health professionals with an interest in RA.

    The Pulmonary Fibrosis Trust aim to provide personal support to people affected by Pulmonary Fibrosis, a very debilitating and life-limiting illness. They offer practical, emotional and financial support where there is a need. They also raise awareness of the illness and in particular the challenges people face on a daily basis.

    If you would like to donate and/or share a memory of Fred please do so here.
