This year’s boxing day dip will take place as usual on Sunny Sands Beach on Thursday 26th December. Registration will take place on the day from 11.30am at the Mariner Pub, 16 The Stade, CT19 6AB.
There will be a fancy dress competition judged on the beach at 12.45pm, 15 minutes before the dip.
The dip will take place at 1pm (approx).
There will be commemorative medals for all ‘Dippers’ who raise money for various charities. The Folkestone Lions Club organise the event, and pass the monies raised onto the charities nominated by the dippers themselves and other local worthy causes. A range of other prizes will be awarded, including one for the dipper who raises the most money.
Sponsorship forms are available from the organisers’ website: www.folkestonelions.org.uk
