Sea Donkey to join Boxing Day dippers

Saturday 26 November 2022

It's hoped that this year's Boxing Day Dip will be a bumper event, boosting the funds raised for its beneficiary, the Guernsey Cheshire Home.

Guernsey's Sea Donkey - aka Adrian Sarchet - will be joining the swimmers on 26 December at Cobo.

Hundreds of swimmers take the dip annually, with the chilly water not putting them off the festive fun.


Pictured: Adrian Sarchet recently swam for 24-hours at the Bathing Pools to raise money for pool equipment to enable access for all. 

This year, the event is again sponsored by Skipton with all money raised on the day by donations going to the Cheshire Home.

Joining the 2022 Boxing Day Dip Ambassador, Mr Sarchet, on the day will be representatives of the Cheshire Home and Skipton.
