David is taking part in the Swimathon to raise money for Cancer Research and Marie Curie
Our EMEA Practice Lead, David Pimperton, will be swimming 5km on the 13th May to raise money for Cancer Research UK and Marie Curie, who are uniting as partners for the Swimathon to raise as much money as possible for two causes close to the nation’s hearts.
In my 50th year I thought I’d set myself a challenge. Cancer is an insidious disease that affects so many, including my family, so for me was an obvious cause to choose plus I like a ‘little’ swim. I’m unashamedly seeking any sponsorship I can get my hands on as would love to smash my target and feel that I was making a difference.

Between the 12th-14th May, thousands of swimmers will be heading to over 450 pools across the UK to raise money. David initially had a target of raising £500, but he has already increased it to £1000 after hitting that goal in just a few days!
