FUNDRAISERS TAKE A NEW YEAR’S DIP FOR RYDE RESCUE

31 people braved taking a dip in the Solent this morning (New Year’s Day) in aid of Ryde Inshore Rescue.

A good crowd gathered to cheer on those running into the sea despite the rather poor weather conditions.

Cllr Wayne Whittle got the event underway at 10:30 following a man overboard demonstration by the Ryde Rescue 1 and 2 lifeboats.

There is already talk of holding the event on an annual basis – but hopefully the sun will shine in 2019!
