Well... I completed the Great Salford Swim today, 26th Sep 2010. Had a fantastic time! Completed the mile in 37 minutes and 22 seconds which is a new personal best, but most importantly have raised £1,365 for the RNLI (@26/09/10)... Thanks everyone for the moral and financial support! Couldn't have done it without you!!!

This donation page will remain open for a few months yet so you can still donate if you'd like to!

With huge thanks!

Dave :-) 


Thanks for visiting my fundraising page for the RNLI - Royal National Lifeboat Institution. 

In September 2007 I had an accident whilst sailing my Laser Pico dinghy out at sea off Abersoch, North Wales. The Abersoch RNLI crew came to my aid and I'll be eternally grateful!

I spend a lot of time out at sea with family and friends and it made me realise just how dependent we are on this life saving volunteer emergency service funded entirely by charity.

Having run the Great North Run to raise funds for the Abersoch station in both 2008 & 2009 I've decided to do something different this year to continue the fundraising. So, at 1pm on Sunday the 26th of September I'll be swimming the Great Salford Swim for the RNLI... It's a mile in Salford Quays ~ http://www.greatswim.org/Events/British-Gas-Great-Salford-Swim/Default.aspx

The RNLI's equipment and training depends entirely upon charity funding, so please dig deep... You never know when you or someone you care about might need them!

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: RNLI - Royal National Lifeboat Institution will receive your money faster and, if you are a taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.

Many thanks for your support.
