Richard likes a challenge and once a year raises money for charity this way. Last year he swam the length of the English Channel (22 miles/1408 lengths of a 25m pool). It took him 16 hours and 12 minutes and the only thing that kept him going was the £3400 raised for Brain Tumour UK in honour of his Uncle.
