Catlins Dolphin Dip fundraiser at the bay
Catlins people showed the lengths they’re prepared to go, to get their community swimming pool re-roofed and back in action, with 88 hardy souls braving polar temperatures at Porpoise Bay, for the inaugural midwinter Dip With The Dolphins. This is just the start of a $40,000 fundraising effort to pay for the Toe Toes Swimming Pool revamp at Tokanui, the only pool in reasonable cooee of this remote southern community. Clutha Leader reporter MARY-JO TOHILL got amongst the goose-bumping action.
They’re off and running at the inaugural 2016 Dolphin dip at Porpoise Bay, Catlins.
