Chiswick resident and local estate agent Harry Middleton is swimming the English Channel for charity.

Harry, an endurance swimmer, is raising money for two causes: Make a Wish and the Fine & Country Foundation, which supports a range of charities. For the swim he will be in the water for more than ten hours straight, a feat he hopes to complete in the coming weeks.

Make A Wish is a charity that grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses, bringing joy and hope to their lives.

The Fine and Country Foundation is the foundation set up by the estate agent Fine and Country, which donates money to a range of charities in the UK and overseas.

Writing on his donation page, Harry added:

“By supporting these two amazing charities through my swim, I hope to make a real difference in the lives of those who are in need. I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to live a fulfilling life, and by supporting these charities, we can help to make that a reality.”

Harry was raising money for the channel crossing at Bedford Park Festival on Saturday and Sunday (10 & 11 June), where he donned a swimming cap and was standing for hours topless in the 30 degree heat collecting donations. So far, Harry has racked up over £1400.
