On Friday 10th June, The Chairman of Herefordshire Council, Councillor Brian Wilcox will swim 90 lengths of the pool at Wye Leisure - one length for every year of the Queen’s life. He aims to raise £1,000 for The Haven in Hereford. 

90 lengths is the equivalent of swimming one mile - a challenge he hopes to complete in a little under one hour.

The Haven in Hereford receives no government funding, and relies completely on charitable donations and fundraising activities to raise the money it needs each year to provide its exceptional level of service.  In the 2015 - 2016 financial year, The Haven in Hereford needs to raise some £330,000.  

Councillor Wilcox has been a huge supporter of The Haven in Hereford since his Mayoral Year in 2012, when he selected The Haven to be his charity of the year, along with Robocap, a charity providing computerised surgical equipment for operating on men with prostate cancer. He raised over £42,000 through the course of his year, over £21,000 of which supported the work of The Haven. He has now selected The Haven as the Chairman's Charity whilst Chairman of Herefordshire Council, and this is his first personal challenge.

Please support him in this epic challenge by donating today.
