Julian's Big Swims
To celebrate his 60th Birthday Julian Wild is doing FOUR
Big Swims this summer - the Great North Swim in Lake Windermere on
Sunday 16 June 2013, the Jane Tomlinson Yorkshire Swim near
Wakefield in September, the Great Manchester Swim at Salford Quays
on 20 July and Swimming Across The River Humber on Sunday 30 June
This is a description of the River Humber:

His chosen Charity is MacMillan Cancer Support. Most families
are touched by cancer at some stage and Macmillan do a wonderful
job in giving patients and families the support they need.
Julian's Big Swims are just a small way of saying thank you to the
charity for all the work they do.
