Skinny Dip 2013 for Marie Curie Cancer Care

15 February 2013

On 2 June this year I shall be stripping and dipping for Skinny Dip 2013, Essex to help raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Four different events – at Dorset, East Lothian, Essex and South Wales – will take place at the same time on the same day in a bid to set a new Guinness World Record for the world’s biggest skinny dip.

It promises to be good fun but the whole point is to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care. The charity is best known for its network of 2,000 Marie Cure Nurses who work in the homes of terminally ill patients across the UK providing practical care and support. In addition there are nine Marie Curie Hospices across the UK, plus an on-going programme of research into the best ways of caring for people with terminal illnesses.

If you would like to help support this cause then please make a donation to Marie Curie Cancer Care via my sponsorship link below. £20 provides a Marie Curie Nurse for one hour in a patient’s home; £180 provides a full nine hour shift for a Marie Curie Nurse in a patient’s home. Any amount you are able to pledge towards these targets would be welcomed as a vital contribution.

Thanks for giving whatever you can spare:

Rest assured that donations will bypass me and go direct to the charity itself.

Participants won’t be allowed to photograph the dip but I’ll post my experiences here.

Thanks again for your much needed support!
