BUYMSH Boxing Day dip is back with a splash!


#BUYMSH are calling on all to make a huge splash in The #DIP 2017, as they call on all brr…ave hardy people across the land to help raise funds on behalf of The #BUYMSH Appeal.

Taking place on Boxing Day, Monday 26th December, at Prestwick Beach 2pm, The #DIP is kindly supported by RAFA, Launch, Cumnock & Doon Valley Sub Aqua Club, Dominos and Irn Bru. 

Trustee Eileen Connaughton commented; “We admire each and every one of you for taking the plunge on Prestwick Beach each year. It has become a yearly tradition for many. What an excellent way to highlight our cause to help create a new 21st Century Respite House in Ayrshire for children, young people and their families suffering with cancer and other life altering illnesses throughout the UK”. She then adds; “Plus this year an exclusive free #DIP Beanie will be yours to keep you warm in the sea, so now there is no excuse!


#BUYMSH are very excited about this year’s #DIP. It’s always a great event with fantastic camaraderie. Actively meeting many of the families throughout the year they aim to support, the #BUYMSH team and supporters will be entering the waters with their bravery very much in mind. Dr Phillipa Whitford MSP, Ambassador to the charity, commented; “It is great so many return to these shores and we enjoy welcoming all the new recruits too. Let’s hope that everyone will keep coming back to keep our chilly tradition on these South Ayrshire shores going strong. I’ll be wearing my #DIP Beanie with pride! I would encourage everyone to come along and enjoy the experience. Many dress up so we can find penguins, fairies, superheroes and even the occasional minion on Prestwick beach! It makes for a truly fun and marvellous spectacle!” The Dip begins at 2pm exactly with the RAFA Club at 10 Ardale Road, Prestwick open from 12 midday. Colin McArdle again will be there to lend his support to the crowds. If you would like a registration form and full event information you should email buymsh@gmail.com. Also, if you would like a shout out over the PA then you can send these requests to the same email address. #BUYMSH look forward to seeing everyone at The #DIP 2017. You will have a huge splash of fun in fundraising for a terrific cause. Do make sure you get your slices of Dominos Pizza and your Irn Bru afterwards. Next year the #BUYMSH team are making an even bigger splash announcing plans later in the New Year.
