Story

We completed our Great North Swim for Genesis on 13th & 14th June. All three swimmers swam really well: Nick did a 3 mile personal best of 1hr 43, Kate was 1:02 hrs for 2 miles and Caz did a mile in around 40 mins  - although we are not sure of her exact time as her chip fell off! (She was obviously swimming v fast). We absolutely loved it and are really grateful for all the donations we have received. Thank you! We've posted some new pics from the 2 days. 

Genesis supports women who sell sex and young people who are sexually exploited in Leeds. It gives out condoms, fresh food and hot drinks to street sex workers and runs a scheme which aims to reduce levels of rape and violence committed against them. It provides safety advice and health services to women who sell sex at home or in parlours, who are often reluctant to access mainstream services because of the stigma attached to being a sex worker. The project also has a specialist support service for children who are sexually exploited. You can still pledge support if you haven't already!

Thanks again, from us and from Genesis
