Boxing Day Dip

26 December @ 10:00 am - 11:30 pm

When the weather outside is frightful, does a dip in the sea sound delightful?

The intention is of course that the Boxing Day Dippers get sponsored, with 80% of funds raised donated to the charity of their choice and the remaining 20% helping many local charities which are supported by Whitby District Lions each year. It is also a great opportunity to raise money for a special charity close to your heart to say thank you for all their efforts and support during the year. The Boxing Day has become a traditional family friendly event with many families meeting up after Christmas Day to spending a lovely Boxing Day morning together.
2016 saw over nearly £9,000.00 raised, with this year hoping to raise even more funds for local causes. The event kicks off at 10am on Boxing Day morning, with registration and fancy-dress judging taking place at the Bandstand, followed by a casual jog into the sea.

Registration forms available from The Whitby Pet Shop, 15 Station Square, Whitby or please contact Lion Chris or Brian Harrison on 01947 897249 for further details.
