Take annual dip in Morecambe Bay on New Year’s Day to raise money for Lancaster hospice
and live on Freeview channel 276
Join St John’s Hospice in Morecambe to swim, splash, or stroll in the sea.
The dip is at the RNLI Boat Station, Marine Road, Morecambe, LA4 5BY.
Past participants, aged between 11 and 90, have donned wetsuits, fancy dress, and even braved it just in speedos - the choice is yours!
‘Dippers’ are encouraged to get sponsored by friends and family to brave the sea and raise money for their local hospice.
The Dip was first held in 2015 by Tyrone Lewis from Morecambe Sailing Club, with proceeds going to St John’s Hospice.
Each year the Dip continues to be supported by Morecambe Sailing Club, as well as the amazing volunteers at Morecambe Bay RNLI.
