We were approached about an incredible boy called Benjamin and just had to share his story! Benjamin is 8 years-old and is swimming the length of the River Trent within 6 months to raise money for When You Wish Upon A Star, a charity whose aim is to grant the wishes of children between the ages of 2 - 16 years old living with life threatening illnesses.
We asked Benjamin a few questions about this fantastic challenge.

We were approached about a remarkable little girl called Rosanna Ogden and we just had to share her story! Rosanna is 5 years old, and with a little help from friends and loved ones, is organising a sponsored swim for a UK heart charity.
