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

Charity Registration No. 1075317

Story

I'm taking on the Aspire Channel Swim 2016, swimming the distance of the Channel over 12 weeks to raise money for Aspire. 

I want to do this because my husband is paralysed from the neck down and Aspire have helped us to sort out some issues we had and because I need them to help us sort out technology for my husband to give him more independence.

I'm also doing it because I love swimming and because I need to get fitter and because it's time for me to give back to those who have given to us through our journey.

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!
