We support people with Spinal Cord Injury to help them live full, independent lives

Charity Registration No. 1075317


I'm taking on the Aspire Channel Swim 2019, swimming the distance of the Channel over 12 weeks to raise money for Aspire. However, I'm planning to do double the distance - 44 miles.

As a regular swimmer, I should be able to do this in 12 weeks, so I'm going to donate 50p per mile I swim if I hit (or surpass) my target. If I miss my target I'll personally donate £1 per mile that I have swum. I could donate £43 or £22.

Why don't you spur me on by donating - you could challenge me too, by doubling your donation if I hit my target.

Some words from Aspire:

Every eight hours someone is paralysed by a Spinal Cord Injury and Aspire provides the essential equipment, advice, housing and grants that spinal cord injured people need to live their lives independently. This is a big challenge, but the more I raise, the more of a difference I'll make, so please be generous!
