About me

I’m going to swim 10k. Yes, really. Please sponsor me!

As you’ll see from the above video, I’ve agreed to swim 10k in just over two weeks for Marie Curie Cancer Care. Please sponsor me!

10k is a long way – for those of you in London, it’s roughly the same as swimming along the Thames from the London Eye to the Millennium Dome. It’s 400 lengths of my local pool.

So, please sponsor me! If you gave just 5p per length, that’d be £20, or enough to pay for an hour of nursing care for a terminally ill patient. Even £1 – 1p for every 10m – would pay for a patient information pack.

If you’re still not convinced, look at the video below which explains a small part of the work that Marie Curie nurses do.

I’ll give you regular updates on my progress over the next couple of weeks.

Thanks for your support.
