    In June 2023 I will be attempting a solo English Channel swim,

    I’ve set a huge target of £21,000 to raise for three amazing charities,

    - The British Heart Foundation ❤️

    - The Firefighters Charity 🚒

    - Midlands Air Ambulance 🚁

    This represents £1,000 for each mile of the swim. My target is very optimistic but whatever amount raised will be split between the charities.

      Following a fundraising event at Stourbridge rugby club £1000 has been added to my page. This is from ticket and raffle money raised. I have also received a number of other donations from amazing people, thank you all so much for your generosity. I’m over the £2000 mark now, so that’s incredible. I’ll keep pushing on and see how much I can finally raise for my three select charities 👍🏼

      Thank you to everyone who’s donated so far, £886 raised for my charities. I’ve still got a long way to go until my Channel swim and plenty of time to keep raising funds. Training is going well, I’ve got a few long swims planned over the next couple of months. I’m trying to build the distance up! Getting used to the cold is a challenge in itself!! 🥶 Once again thank you for your support, please continue to share my page with your family and friends. 👍🏼

    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.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!

    Swimming to raise money for, The British Heart Foundation, Air Ambulance, and the Firefighters charity. The cost of attempting an English Channel swim is £4,000, so a percentage of donations will be used to contribute towards this. Thank you for your support. Iain
