Swim Serpentine

Do your own swim

Event type

Dive right in and organise your own lifesaving swim. You can make waves for people with blood cancer, just pick your place and set your distance.

It costs £40 to add each new potential donor to the stem cell register. With support from people like you, we’re saving lives. Three lives a day in fact.

Without you, there is no cure.

Amy's story

Amy donated her bone marrow in 2018 and wanted to give something back so decided to take on swimming the channel along with her fellow team mates ‘Maggie’s Mermaids’. The team made up of  Amy, Jill , Ross, Stephen, Sarah and Antoni

I donated my stem cells in 2018 to give someone a second chance of life, and wanted to fundraise to continue playing my part! I decided to take on swimming the English Channel with a team of friends – we’re called Maggie’s Mermaids. We completed the swim in 15 hours and 17 minutes, and raised almost £10,000! We had the time of our lives taking on the challenge and feel immensely proud to have raised so much money for such an incredible charity.
