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

Story

I'm taking on the Aspire Channel Swim 2019, swimming the distance of the English Channel over 12 weeks to raise money for Aspire. 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! 

Back in 2016 my dearest friend Pete (aka ‘The fraud on the ward!’) had to be admitted into the spinal unit at Stoke Mandeville Hospital... he was truly humbled by the experience, so together we’re doing this swim to raise awareness and the amazing support that this charity can offer.
