Oscar’s Cross Channel Swim

Oscar loves swimming and took on the mammoth challenge of swimming the length of the English challenge all before his ninth birthday, as he wanted to help Henshaws who supports a dear family friend.

“A dear friend of the family has been receiving help from Henshaws for their disabled son, and Oscar, who loves swimming, wanted to do something to help. He is a really caring a helpful boy and lives by our family moto of “be nice, be useful! As parents we couldn’t be prouder of him.”
