Richard Browning makes a splash for the Beatson

10th Oct 2014

Meet Richard Browning, a competitive swimmer and passionate Beatson Cancer Charity fundraiser. Richard first contacted our team back in May, when he came up with the idea of a sponsored 25k swim to raise funds to support thousands of patients and their families who visit the Beatson every single year.Richard’s brother-in-law Robert has been the driving force behind his fundraising ambitions, having been diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumour earlier this year and consequently attending the Beatson for chemotherapy treatment after his operation.The swimming challenge took place over two days in September, at Inverclyde Waterfront Leisure Centre in Greenock. Through many generous sponsors, Richard managed to raise an outstanding £1,121 for Beatson Cancer Charity. Huge thank you to Richard and everyone else involved!
