Hello, welcome and thank you so much for visiting my JustGiving page!
This summer I am taking on two open water swimming challenges: The Drakes Island Swim (approx 1 mile) on Sunday July 7th and the infamous Plymouth Breakwater Swim (appox 4km) on Sunday 4th August.
Raising money for Prostate Cancer and the Chestnut Appeal for Men's Health is something I hold very close to my heart. Earlier this year my family said goodbye to Donald Upton - husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, friend and all round amazing and inspiration man. Don devoted his life towards helping others find their own health, happiness and wellbeing and it is through Don I found so much of my own life's path. So, in honour of Don, Don's wife Tricia and the rest of my dear, dear family - I will take to the water this summer and with your help aim to raise £400 for the Chestnut Appeal for Men's Health.
It is important to remember that cancer not only affects those with the diagnosis but those within the support circle, friends and family. All donations will go directly to the Chestnut Appeal, supporting prostate cancer patients as well as their families, as they continue to raise awareness, and hold important conversations surrounding men's health.
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. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
If you choose to donate today I thank you from the bottom of my heart but I also thank you for just being here, reading my story and hopefully you will go on to spread awareness in your own ways.
With Love, Lucy x
