Women in the local area are invited to take part in this exhilarating event in aid of in aid of NECRET, North-East Cancer Research & Education Trust.

Funds raised will be used to improve the treatment and outcomes of people with cancer so it truly does make a massive and real difference to those fighting cancer. Leading consultant oncologist Professor Bryan Hennessy is currently spearheading an appeal to purchase a latest generation cancer gene sequencing machine. This machine will facilitate Irish oncologists to better tailor cancer treatments and thus improve cancer care and survival outcomes. We hope to be able to acquire the machine this year. The all female dip will take place on Sunday the 17th at an undisclosed location in the north east.
Participants meet at the Westcourt Hotel in Drogheda on the morning of the dip and from here they are bused to the secret location where the event takes place.
The day promises to be a fantastic event and even if the water is cold the atmosphere will be warm with plenty of inspiring stories, camraderie and fun for everyone brave enough to take part. Last year, 127 women from all over Ireland and the UK gathered in the north east to take part in the sixth year of this event.
The weather last year was beautiful and the organisers are hoping they will be blessed with the same luck again in 2017.
