The clocks have gone back, halloween is fast approaching and its getting more acceptable to talk about Christmas!
We have 70 people signed up already and are hoping to have over 500 people in fancy dress join us in charging into the sea on Christmas Day at 10:30! This year we have concentrated on improving parking on the day as last year we did not realise the gates along the prominade were not open, rest assured this year this will not be an issue.
This year we have set a deadline for all sign ups online to be done BEFORE 23rd December 2014 to allow time for registration to be alot easier on the day. If you have not signed up by 23rd DO NOT WORRY as you can still sign up on the day, the donation we will be asking for will be £10.00 on the day, but allow plenty of time to sign up on the beach and arrive between 9:45 -10:00am.
This year we are happy to announce all sponsorships raised by participants will be spent providing care in our local community, as any running costs of the event have been more than covered by our corporate sponsors, thank you to:-
- Hendy Group, who have been involved in the dip year on year now for 6 years! What will Mr Hendy be going in as this year?
