A Drop In The Ocean - A New Years Day Swim


The other day I stumbled across a just giving site that stopped me in my tracks and made me sit and cry-I was so very moved.
The lady had written ............I`m not a fan of the cold and I`ve never been keen on dressing up.
So what makes me think of dressing up and swimming in a icy cold North Sea on New Years Day 2012 ?
It all started because I read the touching blogs of two siblings whose brother suffered from and recently died from MND..........
To support his family, and in Andrews memory and to raise funds for the MNDA- I`ll be taking that New Years dip at approximately 12.30 at Sandside Beach Area , Scarborough.

Please pop across and leave Elizabeth a message of support and donate if you can-She is one very brave lady ! This means so much to our family and we have been very moved by her sincere and very generous offer of help.The just giving page will be up and running until 31 January 2012

Good luck Elizabeth -I hope the weather will be mild on the day !! We will be thinking of you and I have sent you some bands -I hope they arrive in time xxx

A wonderful (cold, wet ;-) thing Elizabeth is doing...I went from John's blog to donate! I was very impressed by her commitment to helping the MNDA! As Diane said,
