I.T. Director to Swim Channel!

Nigel MillsNigel Mills, managing director of Micro-Business Maintenance Limited, is swapping his motorbike for the water as he takes part in a swimming challenge to raise money for a spinal cord injury charity.

Nigel has signed up to take part in the Aspire Channel Swim 2017, to help raise awareness of spinal cord injuries and the affect it has on people’s lives. Although he won’t actually be swimming the English Channel, he will be swimming the 22 mile distance over nine weeks in his local pool in Wombourne. For more information about the challenge visit

Nigel said: “Every eight hours, someone is paralysed by a spinal cord injury. I found out about the work of the Aspire Charity and felt compelled to help. Swimming the distance of the English Channel is a big challenge, but the more I raise, the more difference it will make to the people the Aspire charity helps.”

Aspire is a national charity that provides help to people who have been paralysed by a spinal cord injury. They support over 40,000 people to live fulfilled and independent lives by providing essential equipment, advice, housing and grants. For more information about the charity visit
