Story

Notching up the quarter-century ...

I first took part in the Swimathon twenty-four years ago in 1994 so this will be the 25th consecutive year I have swum the 5,000 metre challenge. 

The Swimathon is Britain’s largest charity swim, and gives people of very varied swimming abilities an opportunity to raise money for charity by swimming distances of up to 5,000 metres.  The 2018 Swimathon event is in aid of Marie Curie, who look after thousands of  terminally ill people, and for the first time, Cancer Research UK,  the world’s leading cancer research charity.

Marie Curie, the UK’s leading charity for people with any terminal illness and their families, has been Swimathon's charity partner ten times since it launched in 1986 and has raised over £17 million for the charity through the event during that time.

If you sponsor me, or any of the other swimmers taking part in the world’s biggest fundraising swimming event, you will be supporting two incredible causes.


A challenge for everyone. A #SwimForAll
