Dip In The Nip Raises Money For Cancer

 

Updated : Jun 22, 2009

An all-female skinny dip in aid of Breast Cancer called “Dip In The Nip” took place at Lissadell private beach in Sligo earlier this morning.

The location of the so-called “dip in the nip”, a novel fundraising exercise in aid of Action Breast Cancer, had been a closely guarded secret in a bid to spare the blushes of participants.

Unfortunately the dipping nippers didn’t make it into the Guinness Book of Records, but according to organiser Maire Garvey, there was exhilaration among the dippers, who ranged in age from 17 to 70.

“I saw quite a few scars in the water, but I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to be part of it all, when everyone spontaneously started to clap once they hit the water and you looked around at all these women, many wearing pink wigs and tiaras and ribbons cheering with delight.”

She insisted there was no disappointment at the failure to create a record. “It probably would have taken from the spontaneity trying to measure how far people were into the water and counting exact numbers.”

To make it into the Guinness book, 251 women would have had to be in the water, up to their waist, at the same time.

The proceeds have not yet been counted, but with more than 180 women raising an estimated average of €300, it seems likely a cheque for more than €50,000 will be handed over to the Irish Cancer Society.
