A reminder: Sport Relief is happening this weekend

Sport Relief 2016 is now here and tomorrow - Saturday 19th March - I will be taking part in Swimathon 2016 at a pool in Cumbria to raise money for good causes. I aim to swim 5,000 metres for the 23rd consecutive year.

Swimathon is now part of Sport Relief, and supports the same good causes as Comic Relief in Britain and around the world. 50% of the money raised is used to support community projects and good causes in Britain, including a range of causes in Cumbria.

Community projects and good causes supported in Cumbria over the past couple of years have included:

1) Cumbria Gateway
2) North Copeland Youth partnership
3) Copeland occupational and social centre
4) Pride in North Cumbria
5) Sustainable Carlisle Ltd
