BOXING DAY DIP

Rafa Club, Ardayre Road, Prestwick

BOXING DAY DIP

Malcom Sargent House and the Boxing Day Dip go hand in hand so of course we couldn't not hold a Dip this year as we try to raise the funds to create a new MSH.

The RAFA Club have kindly come on to support the Dip as our starting point this year so we will meet there this year and parade down the prom. Colin McArdle will be on hand to give you the annual countdown before you run into the Firth of Clyde for your annual Dip. Registration free of charge and ask that you try and aim to raise £100 per person, but all best efforts are greatly appreciated.

As the campaign is all very new, no onlne page available at the moment so we ask that you please register with us before hand and a sponsor form will be emailed to you. Fancy Dress is encouraged as we are sure you will understand that we will not be providing tshirts this year in a bid to raise as much money as possible but there will be a prize for various categories in the best dressed, including pets! Hot soup with be served at the RAFA club afterwards. The #BUYMSH campaign is something we can all be part of and what simpler way to be part of something so great than by a quick dip in the sea!

To register and receive your pack: Text "DIP" and your full name, address and email address to 07833 472313
