Cancer Connections Boxing Day Dip 2019: What time it starts and how to register
There are a brave group of people amongst us who like to start their Boxing Day with a bracing dip in the North Sea.
Taking part in a Boxing Day Dip is a fantastic way to blow away the cobwebs after your slap-up turkey lunch and a few sherries – and if this sounds like it's up your street, we have everything you need to know about this year’s event in South Shields, in aid of Cancer Connections.
The charity’s Boxing Day Dip takes place each year at Littlehaven Beach and attracts dozens of keen punters from across the town and beyond to take the plunge.
The costumes are colourful, spirits are high and the weather is always, always cold. But it’s a great morning out and a wonderful way to raise money for a cause close to your family’s heart.
Here is what we know about the event so far.
Dippers and spectators are asked to arrive at Littlehaven beach between 10am and 10.45am on Thursday, December 26.
Registration for the event is available now and you must sign up in advance if you want to take part.
Applications forms are available now from the Cancer Connections office in Harton Lane, South Shields.
You can also call the charity on 0191 456 5081 to request one.
Good luck everyone!
