President's Charity 2018/19
Each year our President chooses a charity close to her heart to support and Circles from all across the UK fundraise and also raise awareness of the charity.
This year’s President, Jo Hudson, has chosen Marie Curie to support and has set herself the challenge of swimming the English channel...and back (as she doesn't want to get stuck in France!) It's the equivalent of 6 marathons but luckily Jo will be doing the challenge from the comfort of her local pool...and ovber 30 weeks - that's 72 lengths of the pool every week!
She'll have support along the way, whether that's someone joining her in the pool, documenting her progress or providing her with croissants when she gets to France.
"I have an awesome team on hand, as well as some goose fat if required!"
Marie Curie provides care and support for people living with any terminal illness across the UK. Their nurses work night and day in people’s homes and their hospices offer specialist care. They also support people emotionally, provide practical information, and match them with trained volunteers.
For Circlers looking to raise money for the charity please contact Grace Humphrey, PLC Charity chick.
