Story

My little mate has decided that he wants to do what he can to help all those in need who are suffering from the big C and the people around them.

Uncle Pip, Auntie Linda and the boys, 

Uncle Mick who was taken from us recently,

And Atashka (Grand dad) who's birthday would be the day he swims.

It's for you.

He said he's going to smash his last swimathon (65 lengths) and is aiming for 2.5Km which is 100 lengths in our local pool.  

Please help out with what you can as we all might need a little help from Cancer Research and Marie Curie at some point in our lives.  The big C touches more people than is fair.

Cancer Research UK is the largest charitable funder of cancer research in the world and will stay at the forefront of the global fight against cancer. 1 in 2 of us will get cancer. All of us can support the research that will beat it. 

Marie Curie is here for people with any terminal illness, and those close to them from diagnosis to bereavement. Our nurses and healthcare assistants support families directly across the UK. Our free support line can help with any question about end of life.And we campaign for structural change and fund vital research that improves end of life for everyone. 

On 12-14 May, thousands of swimmers will be heading to over 450 pools across the UK to raise money for our two amazing charity partners. Together we can really make a difference. We invite our swimmers to tell their story to help spread awareness and raise vital funds for these two incredible causes.
