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


In 2012 my vertebrae slipped severely squashing my spinal cord and spinal nerves. I had to have major surgery fusing and putting in rods and screws to hold the vertebrae in place. After a very long rehabilitation I was very lucky to get away with just damaged spinal nerves. In 2015 I again needed another major back surgery, since then my life has changed totally and swimming is the only exercise I can do without too much pain. 

So for the 4th year I'm taking on the Aspire Channel Swim 2021, swimming the distance of the English Channel over 12 weeks to raise money for Aspire. So far over the 3 years I have been a leaderboard winner plus raised over £5,300. 

It gets harder every year to find people to sponsor me or donate so if you feel you have a few £££'s or pennies spare please hit the donate button and give them to Aspire. We will both be ever grateful for your support ❤️

Every four hours someone is paralysed by Spinal Cord Injury and Aspire provides the essential equipment, advice and housing 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!

To read more about my health, the reasons this cause is so close to my heart and my previous years Aspire Channel Distance Swim progress have a look at my swimming blog link below.

I'm back swimming again at a private pool as my usual pool is still closed from the Covid restrictions and will start to post again on my blog soon.

Thank you for taking the time coming over to my JustGiving page 2021 xxx
