A team dressed as Where's Wally who took part in the New Year's Day Dip in 2022

A chilly challenge to raise money for a Lancaster hospice returns on New Year’s Day.

St John's Hospice is organising the New Year’s day Dip where people brave the waters of Morecambe Bay to raise money for the hospice.

Fancy dress is welcomed and there is also a 500m swim course challenge available too.

The Dip costs £7 to enter and the swim, for strong swimmers who are used to cold water, is £12

Male and female changing facilities in heated gazebos are available.

Registration is now open for the event, which goes from the RNLI Boat Station on Marine Road.

Registration opens at 11.30am for the start at 1pm.

Minimum age for the dip is 11, all children must be accompanied by an adult (over 18). Minimum age for the swim is 18. Everyone must sign a disclaimer on the day before participating.

Contact the hospice fundraising department with any queries on 01524 382538.

St John’s Hospice is a charity based on Slyne Road, Lancaster, which provides free palliative care to patients with life shortening conditions.
