Last night family, friends and colleagues gathered to recognise and celebrate the efforts of heroic swimmer, prolific fundraiser and dear friend of LLR, Mark Johansen. Mark swam the English Channel solo back in September raising more than £20,680 to beat blood cancer. As if once wasn’t enough, a few weeks later he plunged back into the murky seas for another go, this time as a part of a relay team of young swimmers. He endured all of this—the early morning training, the jelly fish, the frigid...

Tucking into an amazing Christmas dinner and falling asleep in front of the TV. My family didn’t realise how special these moments were, until our lives were turned upside down. Will you donate today to help more families have their special moments this Christmas? We really can’t remember what our Christmas traditions were...
