Michelle Lonican, Brian House’s community fundraiser for Brian House said: “Brian House celebrates its 21st birthday this year, so this a lovely birthday gift. Modern and more comfortable decoration will help make an unbearable situation just a little better for those who find themselves in need of our family apartment facilities.” Sunday’s swimarathon at St Annes YMCA Pool starts at 9am.
