“Many people sadly lose their lives due to drowning, whether that is through inexperience or unfortunate circumstances. I want to raise awareness of the good work this charity does in preventing lives being lost in water. “

The swim is another challenge to add to Danny’s collection. In the past two years he has completed Ironman Triathlon and a 24 walk up Pendle Hill, all for good causes including Pendleside Hospice. Danny’s swim challenge takes place at St Peter’s Centre in Burnley on Friday, June 28th from 9am to 9pm and he has invited anyone who wants to support him to go along at various points to keep him motivated.

Danny has set himself a fundraising goal of £1,000 and anyone who would like to donate is asked to click HERE.
