'Taking the Plunge!' - First to kick start proceedings was the brave Andy Young. Andy's challenge was to plunge into ice cold water every day for 30 days, wearing a different outfit for each dip!! He courageously faced his dislike of freezing cold water and, with a sterling effort, completed his task!!
A massive thank you goes to Andy for his huge commitment. We really do appreciate what you have done.
