David’s Story

We have been privileged to meet David and his wife Dorothy through various sources around Trafford and we were astounded that David chose the Foundation, along with two other tremendous causes, Stockdales – www.stockdales.org.uk and Samaritans - www.samaritans.org to benefit from this amazing event. 

David says:

"Since the 1960’s when I first enjoyed swimming as a junior at Sale Swimming Club (now Trafford Metro), I have nurtured a dream to swim the English Channel one day. I finally now have the chance to realise that ambition at the grand old age of 60”.

David undertook his challenge on 5th September 2014 but unfortunately, after swimming for over an amazing 8 hours, he had to concede due to the poor weather conditions being a threat to his safety.

David raised well over £4,000 in total and we are very grateful to him for all his efforts.
