The bacta ‘Smile Makers’ are making marvellous progress with a staggering 35,479 miles as we went to press.


There is still a target of 50,000 miles to be reached by midnight on 31st of March but the better weather has seen the 171 entrants get out and log those miles.

A special mention must go to Tim Batstone who is currently based in Dubai who logged his miles sea swimming around the Palm Jumeirah which took him 6 hours 47 minutes due to rough seas.

“Thank you to Tim and everyone who is logging those miles and donating money. We are now on £1695 raised for the bacta Charitable Trust – we would love to reach £5,000.

If you haven’t donated yet please can you visit our JustGiving page below,” says organiser Steph Norbury
