World Record Attempt June 30th 2019

Very sadly Brian Harrison who has been involved in my swimming career from the start has recently passed away . Brian presented me with lots of trophies, supported me poolside and selected me as Hampshire Captain at my last Inter Counties and for previous Hampshire teams. The Regionals and Counties won’t be the same without him. So many swimmers like me will miss you Brian . We’re doing this swim for you .

I’ve always been fascinated by world records and have always wanted to be involved in breaking one. This record attempt is a very exciting challenge. It’s also an opportunity to fundraise. I chose CRUK because both my grandmothers have fought cancer and I’m very lucky that they are both now fit and well, thanks to the fantastic research funded by CRUK. I wanted to show my thanks by raising £10,000 as a team to be able to save more lives.

Breast cancer

With almost 140 women diagnosed every day, breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. And, although rarer, around 350 men are also diagnosed with breast cancer every year. The good news is more than two-thirds of women now survive 20 years or more. Help Cancer Research UK find new ways to diagnose and treat the disease.
