BUYMSH dip rescheduled in memory of Princess Tilly

Details of the event from BMSH are below 

Our Annual Boxing Day Dip has NOW been rescheduled to take place on Sunday 19th February 2017. This will be a Valentine's Dip with love and in memory of Tilly.

Princess Tilly from Ayr, tragically lost her battle with cancer in November 2016. Tilly's battle captured the hearts and support of the people of Ayrshire and the #BUYMSH Appeal team are honoured to dedicate this Dip in Tilly's memory.

We, as a 'volunteer run' charity would like to bring together the Ayrshire Community to show our love for Tilly and her family, at this time of the year.

As a children's charity, we must also raise awareness of children and teenage cancer in Ayrshire, and importantly to raise the much needed funds to build a new holiday home in Ayrshire for young children, teenagers and their families suffering with cancer and other life altering illnesses in the UK.

Registration will take place at The RAFA Club from 1pm. Participants aka 'Dippers' will then march down to the beach following our piper and run into the sea at 2pm. The RAFA Club will be open for changing, warming up and refreshments, and they have kindly offered to play live music for our dippers and friends of the #BUYMSH Appeal. The Bar will also be open after the Dip! 

Ayrshire Daily News will be filming the event live. There may be other television/media presence.
