Brave swimmers will plunge into chilly water in the middle of winter to raise money for charity in The Big Chilli Dip.

Fund-raisers are being sought to swim 10 lengths in cold water and raise money for St Nicholas Hospice Care, on February 23.

The brave swimmers will be greeted with a bowl of hot chilli, or vegetarian alternative, as they emerge from the water.

Lucy Alfred, design and events officer, said: “The Big Chilli Dip is not a challenge for the faint hearted.

“While everyone who takes part will be warmed by a lovely portion of chilli at the end, first we ask that they swim at least 10 lengths of the pool.

“The water will be cold - very cold - but because it’s all for a good cause we hope the daredevils out there will take on the challenge.”

The event will be held at Moreton Hall Health Club’s outdoor swimming pool, where waters will be a chilling 6c.

Participants must be confident swimmers aged 16 or over and are asked to aim to gather at least £80 in sponsorship.

St Nicholas Hospice Care supports those with life threatening illnesses in West Suffolk and Thetford.

If you feel you are up to the challenge pick up a registration form from hospice shops, go to www.stnicholashospicecare.org.uk or call 01284 715559
