During my upcoming open water swims, I shall be fundraising for a couple of incredible charities.
SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, exists to relieve need, suffering and distress amongst the Armed Forces, veterans and their families in order to support their independence and dignity. In recognition of their service to the Nation, SSAFA works to ensure that the needs of the Armed Forces, veterans and their families are met in an appropriate and timely way.
Welsh Hearts are the leading heart charity in Wales for placing defibrillators in communities and delivering CPR and defibrillator training in Wales. Cardiovascular disease accounts for a third of all deaths in Wales, where the death rate is higher than in the majority of countries in Western Europe.
