Help Andrew swim across the English Channel this week and support Guts UK!

8th January 2019

Whilst most of us are still coming to terms with dark mornings and sluggish starts to the New Year, Guts UK supporter Andrew Durbridge has started his challenge to swim the equivalent of The English Channel crossing before he gets to his desk. He will be swimming a total of 640 lengths / 32,000 meters / 21 miles over the course of 10 days.

 

Andrew started his epic fundraising on January 4th and has raised £360 to date. “It’s getting tougher and tougher” says Andrew who is half way through “and my shoulders really ache!” Can we give him some support?

 

Andrew has set a personal target of £1,000 and his generous employers Pageant Media have pledged to double what Andrew raises so please support his super swim for Guts UK by making a donation here https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/andrew-durbidge-is-swimming-the-channel-before-work-for-guts-uk
