North East Skinny Dip: See more as pictures bathers brave the North Sea to mark the autumn equinox and support mental health charity Mind
Sunday’s (September 25) edition of the dip is expected to see the total raised over its lifetime eclipse £100,000.
Speaking ahead of the event, founder Jax Higginson, from Whitburn, said: “North East Skinny Dip is a celebration of life, of nature and of our own, unique, physical bodies.
"It’s about taking a risk and embracing a moment of pure joy and freedom.”
