Splashing for cash on Boxing Day

Flamborough Festive Dip - Boxing Day South Landing
Flamborough Festive Dip - Boxing Day South Landing

Christmas is fast approaching which means that preparations are well underway for the Flamborough Pre-School Boxing Day Dip.

This year the event will celebrate its sixth anniversary and organisers are hoping that this year’s dip will create an even bigger splash of cash for the local Pre-school.

Since the first dip in 2009, the event has raised much needed funds for Flamborough Pre-School. This year, participants are being encouraged to dress in Hawaiian themed fancy dress.

Carrie-Ann Taylor, Committee Chairperson at the Pre-school and one of the organisers of the event, said: “Each year the event has grown in popularity and we are delighted that it has now become part of the festive calendar for the local community whilst helping raise vital funds for the Pre-school.”

Once again the Flamborough Longsword Dancers are supporting the event. They are encouraging local people to head down to South Landing to cheer on the dippers before heading back into the village for their annual Boxing Day tradition which sees them performing outside each pub in aid of local charities.

Carrie-Ann said: “We want Boxing Day to be a day that local people really look forward to, full of lots of community activity and traditions.”

To register for this year’s event please collect a sponsorship form from ‘The old Tuck Shop’ in Flamborough or The Rose and Crown pub. Dippers and spectators are asked to gather at South Landing for 10.30am with the dip starting at 10 45am.

The Longsword Dancers will be performing outside the Rose and Crown pub in High Street at 1pm.
