Mark swims the channel for Amber.

Mark Critchlow (who is registered partially sighted) completed his charity swim across the English Channel as part of a four-person international team. The swimmers – Mark, Etienne from France, Brian from the USA and Kate from Australia – swam in relay, for an hour at a time. The team managed to cross the channel in an impressive 13 hours and 31 minutes.

Mark was swimming to raise funds for Amber and we are so grateful for all he has done to improve the lives of blind children in the UK. The money he has raised will go towards funding music lessons, music instruments and musical therapy for many of the children we support.

There is still time to sponsor Mark at his Virgin Giving Website.

Thank you Mark!
