FOOLHARDY Bridlington daredevils will brave icy waters to join in the town’s 46th Christmas Day swim.

The annual event takes place at north beach, close to the Expanse Hotel, every Christmas morning at 10am.

Usually 20 to 40 people get involved on the day, many donning fancy dress to take part.

The event is always for charity, and this year funds raised will be donated to a local children’s cancer charity which will be confirmed at a later date.

People can contact organiser Janet Connelly, whose late husband Warwick started the Christmas Day swim 46 years ago, on 670071 for sponsorship forms.
