Shut Up & Swim Challenge
Charlie was a great supporter of the JLA, and in his honour the "Shut Up & Swim Challenge" has been put together - a virtual swim, taking place between 24th July and 31st August. Nothing is free in this world anymore, apart from this swim, as long as you make a donation. Please support this if you can and show your love and respect for the great Charlie Gravett.
