Over the past ten weeks, Richard Pearce has taken on the challenge of swimming the English Channel distance (21 miles/33,000 metres) in his local swimming pool. (See the outcome here).
Richard decided to take this challenge upon himself for his own mental health, but to also raise money for breast cancer charities.
Any money raised will be split between national and local breast cancer charities to help with their vital funding to help the research and development of medication, as well as to help those suffering with the illness.
He decided to swim the English Channel as it is a sustainable way of raising some money, to read more about our plans for sustainability, click here.
