I'm fundraising to raise money for Cancer Research UK

In memory of

John George Davidson

24 Jan 1930 - 30 Oct 2020

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. As you may know, I lost my lovely dad in October last year to Small Cell Lung Cancer.
This has made me want to help raise funds for Lung Cancer research in any way I can. Hopefully, at some point in the future, nobody else will need to lose their loved ones to such a hideous, cruel disease.
I'm far from fit but I'm going to swim the English Channel! Ok, not literally...I'll be doing this in the pools at Ashington and Blyth Leisure Centres but the distance will be the same. I'm going to swim 21 miles in 10 weeks. Might be simple for some but that will be quite an achievement for me.
I know these are challenging times and money is tight. If you can spare anything at all it would be much appreciated.
As an ex employee of Ashington Leisure Centre, my dad would have loved this!
