Rotary Lyme Lunge: Take a Plunge
in the sea for Charity
A fancy dress dip in the balmy waters of Lyme Bay,
13.00 hours at the Cobb Beach, all for charity.
Everyone welcome, whether ‘dipping’ or contributing to our charity
collection. “If you would like to raise funds for the chosen Rotary
2018 in aid of Shelterbox please feel free to use the downloadable sponsor form, where sponsors can sign up to Gift
Aid if they wish. If you have your own charity which you wish to raise funds for then please go ahead. It would help our cause if you would just email us with the amount raised. If you just want a swim, feel free to join us, there is no obligation” 1pm from the Sandy Beach (time to watch the Duck Race First).
Wet suits allowed, preferably with fancy dress over the top, just a paddle in the sea is enough to say you've 'done the Lyme Lunge' for charity. No doubt the collectors will get as wet as the Lungers! Whether watching or lunging don't forget to arrive early.
This time our chosen charity will be SHELTERBOX, the renowned disaster relief charity run by
Rotarians. Please consider downloading our sponsor form and helping us
raise funds for this great charity.
