Swim gets peo­ple deeply dippy

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - SOCIAL SCENE - By Jack Troughton

Peo­ple dug deep into their pock­ets to sup­port the an­nual New Year’s Day spon­sored swim in Javea – rais­ing more than €3,000.

Spon­sor­ship and a bucket col­lec­tion among the crowd that gath­ers at the Are­nal beach to watch the colour­ful event – many swim­mers don fancy dress for their dip – con­trib­ute the largest part of the to­tal.

Or­gan­ised by Karen and Nigel Rush­ton of the Lan­cashire Bruja bar, the pro­ceeds from this year’s swim will be di­vided to help chil­dren at­tend­ing spe­cial schools in De­nia and Calpe.

Re­ceipts from how the €3,074 is spent will later be posted in the bar, al­low­ing vis­i­tors to see where their do­na­tions went.
