Great North Swim charity places

Everyday animals are abused and treated with cruelty. You can help change this. Join Team Animal for the Great North Swim 2019 and together we can make the world a kinder place for all animals.

Every penny you raise will mean that we can be there to help more animals when they need us most. Together we can make sure animals are cared for, protected and given a second chance in a loving home.
