Sign up for the big dip

THERE are only days to go to register to take part in this year’s Boxing Day Dip.

More than 300 people have registered for the fun tradition at Seaton Carew beach, which raises thousands of pounds for good causes.

And there is still time for anyone aged from five to 85 to sign up for the dip.

The deadline for entries is this Thursday. Organisers, the Hartlepool Lions, are also reminding dippers that as well as supporting their favourite charity, a slice of their sponsorship will help local causes.

To register, collect a card from Hartlepool Civic Centre, Victoria Road, Seaton Carew Social Club or download one from www.hartlepoollions.wetpaint.com
