We care for seriously ill adults & children to help them 'Make every day count'


I have finally plucked up the courage to take on my ultimate challenge. In August 2023 I will attempt to Swim the English Channel and in doing so, am also raising money for an amazing local charity organisation. 

Swimming the channel is at it's shortest point, a swim of 21 miles. It's likely to be a bit more than that based on tides and weather and is one of the hardest challenges there is with less that 2000 completing it. It will be long training hours, lots of self doubt, early mornings and late nights and hopefully sucess at the end of it! What will really help me through is where you come in...

I'm raising money for Havens Hospices. They are a Southend based charity that help people with complex or incurable conditions. The care work they do focuses on the person's quality of life, offering choice and support and ‘Making every day count’. The Pandemic has meant they now need more help than every and I really hope that you can support me in raising money for this great charity.
