22 mile charity swim in local pool over 12 weeks for Aspire!

ComfortableSoftwares Adrian Birch will swim 22 miles over 12 weeks, please support him and donate!
Dear visitor,
I am trying to raise money for Aspire, for Spinal Injuries with the "Swim with Dave campaign"!
From September 13th until December the 5th I have to swim 22 miles in my local pool, which is the equivalent of swimming the channel. As many of you will know, it will be tough as I am not the fittest person on the planet, indeed getting fit is what took me to the pool!

In the local pool where I am doing the swim I need to swim 50 lengths to match 1 mile! So I have a lot to do.

I am asking you all if you would kindly go to my fund-raising page here: http://www.justgiving.com/adrianbirch to make a donation.

More information about where the money goes can be found here:
http://www.aspire.org.uk/

I really do hope you can help me with this challenge, I am 100% committed to it, especially as its the first physical sponsorship challenge I have ever attempted to do!

Please feel free to let anyone you know about my fund-raising page ;), and if you have a website, please add my link to it!

Should they wish, any business who sponsors me can also have a free link on this website too, search engines love crossed linked websites!

Thank you for reading this and I apologise if you have already received one of my many emails.

Likewise, if you have donated or plan too, thank you very much!
Adrians progress in the 22 mile swim is shown here!
WHERE THE MONEY GOES
THERE ARE CURRENTLY 40,000 INDIVIDUALS IN THE UK WITH A SPINAL CORD INJURY. EVERY DAY ANOTHER FOUR PEOPLE ARE TOLD THEY MAY NEVER WALK AGAIN.

Aspire is a charity that works with people with spinal cord injury to create opportunity, choice and independence. Our national services and programmes include adapted housing for people leaving hospital if houses aren't yet accessible, specialist computer equipment, independent living officers who provide direct support and advice for people recently injured and the Human Needs Fund which people can apply to for funding for specialist equipment. Aspire ensures that everyone with a spinal cord injury has the opportunity to live an independent and fulfilled life.

Aspire receives no statutory funding, so every penny raised through the Aspire Channel Swim will help us to continue our vital work.
  • 100 will buy the duvet and pillows for one of our adapted houses
  • 350 will buy SmartNav technology for a PC to enable someone with a high level spinal injury to use a computer
  • 700 will buy a laptop and an accessible bed table for a child in hospital so they can continue to study and stay connected to friends whilst recovering
  • 1,000 will provide a rise and fall hob or sink in one of our adapted houses
  • 2,500 will buy a made to measure light weight wheelchair
Last year the Aspire Channel Swim raised a staggering: 445,176!
