Prestwick Boxing Day Dip

The challenge

The Prestwick Dip is one of the best known festive events in Ayrshire and people come from all over the region to take part.

Follow in the footsteps of the thousands of brave dippers who have been taking part since 2006 and help make 2014 a record year.

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager May Gilchrist said: "Literally thousands of locals come to watch as well so it’s well attended no matter what the weather throws at us.

"I thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere on the day as children, participants and the general public all mingle and dance to the music in the freezing cold."

After the dip, everyone will get some hot soup, a tod of whisky (18 and above only), and a goody bag to take home.
