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 2013.

This is a description of the River Humber:

'Out there is a confusion of shifting sandbanks, swirling currents, treacherous channels - and mud, mud, inglorious mud. They all offer a potential hazard to the thousands of commercial vessels and pleasure craft which ply this busy inland stretch. Not for nothing does the Humber have the reputation as the world's second most dangerous navigable waterway - after Venezuela's mighty Orinoco.'

"The Humber deserves a lot of respect. You never know what challenge it might present even when the weather's apparently good," said TV documentary film-maker Paul Berriff, initiator of the Humber Rescue. 

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.
