Calling all swimmers and swimming teams, the Butterfly Children’s Charity needs your help. DEBRA Spain is planning to host a ‘Boxing Day Dip’ on 26th Decemebr at Guardamar beach. The event will take place in front of Bar Restaurante Isla Tabarca, which is next to the Red Cross station and lookout tower, and the local community s being asked to support the event – with festive fancy dress or without.

The event is to raise awareness and funds for The Butterfly Children Charity, DEBRA Spain and the Dip will be held at midday with entertainment starting at 11.30am until1.30pm, due to the tides organisers are recommending that non-swimmers who wish to take part in the event only go in up to the waist.

Sponsorship forms can be obtained at both of the Butterfly Children Charity Shops in Pueblo Bravo or La Marina or contact Rob Radford for sponsorship forms and posters on 662 679 467.

Restaurante Isla Tabarca will provided a special menu Del Dia or soup for those who need to be warmed after the dip and Mercury FM will be broadcasting live from the event. Organisers are also looking for face painters and street entertainers who would be kind enough to help by giving an hour or two of your time to keep the crowd entertained, please contact Rob on the above number.
