Solo Round Island Swim
Challenging myself to a Solo swim around the Island of Jersey in order to raise awareness and funds from three charities close to my heart. Macmillan Jersey, Mind Jersey and St Barnabas have been amazing supports to me and my family. Ideally, my goal is to raise £5000 which will be equally split across these charities and go towards supporting so many more people and families who need their expert support. Thank you for your support and consideration.
My name is Dean Anderson and I wanted to undertake a challenge of physical and mental endurance in order to support three very important charities.
This is my way of giving back to charities which tirelessly go out of their way to help people through extremely difficult times and do so day in day out.
In 2017 my step father, Tim Probert, passed away. He was diagnosed with a Brain Tumour in September 2016 and attended the hospital January 2017. Following his operation there were several complications which led to his requirement for palliative care resulting in him passing away.
During this extremely difficult time, Macmillan, Mind and St Barnabas were there to support the family in a variety of ways, and did so with the utmost compassion and willingness to make a real difference.

Special thanks to the following people who have been an incredible support to me:

- Thank you to all my family for their support in allowing me to train for this event :) and deal with the early morning wake ups and time in the water
