BEACH Buddies is once again delighted to be invited to join in with the wonderful people at Breast Cancer Now for the annual New Year’s Day Dip in Douglas, at the much earlier time than normal of 10am. The dip is once again being sponsored by our friends at Canada Life International
We are also really pleased to say that Lt Governor Sir John Lorimer and Lady Philippa Lorimer, who are joint patrons of both Beach Buddies and Breast Cancer Now, will again be taking part – this time bringing with them a massive team of friends and relatives who will be on the Island at the time!
This event has grown enormously in recent years and is a brilliant event for spectators watching from the promenade opposite the Queen’s Hotel. We have also seen more and more people actually taking the dip, with around 200 involved last year and we’re hoping to break that record again on January 1st and raise lots of money for the two charities.
