"Swimming the Channel was a real challenge � I had never done anything like it before.  But then the Bristol Cancer Help Centre and the help and support it offers to people living with cancer is so special, I wanted to do something unusual to raise money."

Roger Chubb,

Investment Partner, Hartnell Taylor Cook, who swam the Channel as part of a team of 8 to raise money for the Centre in July 2003.
