We fund equipment, research & facilities to support patients at our four hospitals


One of our top-performing swimmers, Ethan Billinge is currently taking time out from a very busy training schedule to overcome and defeat Leukaemia.  Ethan is not afraid of big challenges as his past performances in the pool have demonstrated.  This challenge is no different and although new and different, he has world-class coaches, a great family and a brilliant Swimming Club supporting him.

Queen Elizabeth hospital in Birmingham is taking the lead for us with this challenge, and confidence is high in the camp of one podium position for Ethan, which is clear the blood cancer and achieve gold.

However, we're reaching out for help by asking you to take our Lemon CoD Challenge (take a big bite of a lemon and keep it in your mouth for 10 seconds!) .  

This type of Leukaemia is risking and taking the lives of too many people, preventing them reaching their potential and like Ethan doing amazing things.

Please help Ethan and Queen Elizabeth by making a donation to our JustGiving page, and share your Lemon Cod Challenge videos with us on twitter (
