Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On the 1st September 2013, I swam across the English Channel in 14hrs 52mins to raise money towards Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, a cause very close to my heart as my dad died to a form of blood cancer.

Only approximately 1,300 people have successfully completed the channel crossing, and I went through over 2 years of daily training and preperation to get me ready. It was one of the most difficult experiences of my life, but every donation LLR receives really helps boost the feeling that it was worth it.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now, it really means a lot. Thank you.
