CHRIST­MAS DAY SWIM

Cornwall Life - - THE DIARY -

The hardy (or should that be fool­hardy?!) folk who take to the wa­ter on Christ­mas Day gen­er­ally do so for good causes. In North Cornwall the ben­e­fi­ciary is Bude

Surf Life Sav­ing Club, founded in 1953 mak­ing it the old­est SLSC in the coun­try. Around 500 swim­mers take part, and sev­eral thou­sand line the water­front at Crook­lets Beach in Bude to watch. There is full life­guard cover and hot re­fresh­ments for par­tic­i­pants. If you raise more than £30 in spon­sor­ship you get a free sou­venir T shirt.
