Deal Boxing Day Dip

This Boxing Day, I once again braved Deal beach to witness hundreds of hardy souls run into the freezing waters of the English Channel. Apart from the health-giving benefits of the event, these local residents were part of the 'Deal Icebreakers' group, running into the sea for this Boxing Day Dip to raise money for charity and good causes.

Deal Icebreakers have raised thousands of pounds in the last three decades for lesser known charities. I was glad I wasn't running into the water myself! It was also good to talk with Mayor Marlene Burnham who was, like me, watching safely from the sidelines.
