Record entry hopes for Lyme Lunge

Hardy souls wanted to take a dip in the briny

LYME Regis Rotary Club is inviting hardy souls to join them for another dip in the briny on New Year’s Day.

And they are hoping generous sponsors will splash out to make this year’s “Lyme Lunge” a bumper fund raiser.

More than 1,000 people gathered on the beach last year and collections raised �1,300 for Rotary charities.

This year the causes to benefit will be Rotary Shelterbox and the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance. It is hoped to have Shelterbox, and the equipment that goes with it, on display.

Swimmers are invited to put on fancy dress and dash into the water at 1pm. Much-needed hot soup will be available after they come out.

Sponsorship forms can be downloaded by clocking on the Lyme Lunge link at Sponsorship can be for both the charities or can be for a charity of the sponsor’s own choice.
