We work inside schools to improve the emotional wellbeing of children, their families and the whole school community. Children today have all sorts of worries from friendships to bereavement, domestic violence, gang culture or crime. By supporting children now we give them the chance to work through these issues and grow up with prospects rather than problems.

2Swim4Life 2017

2Swim4Life was started in 2008 and has raised over £105,000 in sponsorship during its history.

The challenge is to swim 1 mile, on the hour, every hour, for 24 hours. Some do it solo and some as part of a team. Either way, it is physically and mentally exhausting challenge.

On Saturday 22 April 2017, at the beautiful Guildford Lido in Surrey, we will be holding our fourth event (and final event at this venue) to support Place2Be - a wonderful charity that provides vital mental health support to children, their families and school staff in schools, so children can grow up with prospects, not problems.

To find out more about the challenge please visit http://2swim4life.com/ and like our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/2Swim4Life/.

On behalf of 2Swim4Life, Place2Be and those they help, thank you for your donation.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
