In total the swim (including training and equipment) will cost me well over £5,000.  I have therefore set myself the goal of raising £5,000+ for Cancer Research UK, to support them in their valuable work fighting this terrible disease.

I am completely funding the swim myself, but have been very lucky to receive support / sponsorship towards meeting this goal for Cancer Research UK from some amazing people and companies.

I would like to say a huge thank you to all the wonderful people and organisations who are already supporting my English Channel Solo swim for August 2013 and the training it will involve.
