We have some lovely news to start off the New Year as the notification was received from the team at Aontas STAR Awards that our popular sea swimming and water safety programme Dare2Dip!, which was delivered online in June ’21, has been nominated for an award in the ‘Health and Wellbeing’ category.

The Dare2Dip! programme highlighted not only the physical and wellbeing benefits of dipping/swimming in open water but also the safety awareness aspect to ensure participants were more confident to go into the water, with increased knowledge and awareness to enjoy it and keep themselves safe first and foremost. The programme was funded by Donegal County Council under the (2021) Development Fund Initiative.

We will have to wait until Springtime (when the tides start to warm up again) to find out the outcome! In the meantime, we wish you continued happy and safe dipping!
