Organisers of Bray's Annual New Year's Day Charity Swim are planning to raise more money than ever before. Set up 28 years ago for the dual purposes of having some festive fun and raising funds for local charities, this yearly event has to date raised 250,000 for a long list of worthy local causes.

The last seasonal splash raised 17,500 in aid of Bray Charities. Charities which have benefited from the swim over the years have included Sunbeam House, St. Vincent De Paul, the Bray Women's Refuge, Bray Cancer Support Group, the Bray Old Folks Association, Meals on Wheels, Guide Dogs for the Blind, St. Catherine's Special School, St. Columcille's Hospital, Cystic Fibrosis, Fassaroe Community Centre, the Order of Malta, the Old Folks Association on Boghall Road, the ISPCC, Marino Clinic, St. Columcille's Hospital CAT Scan appeal and Bray Children In Need, Orchard Retirement Home, Bray Lions Club and the Bray Soroptimists Club.

And with approximately 200 swimmers set to taking part in Swim 2011, event organisers are hoping to do even better this year.With many of the swimmers turning out in fancy dress, this is always a very enjoyable and colourful event. Being our 28th Swim, this will be an extra-special occasion, says Joint Organiser John McEvoy.

The charity that will benefit from the 2011 Sea Swim will be the Bray St. Vincent De Paul.

The Swim will take place at the Southern end of Bray Seafront at 12 noon on New Year's Day, and the organisers would be delighted to hear from any volunteers ready to brave the waves on behalf of this year's charity.
