If you don’t fancy taking part, pop down and join the thousands of others to cheer on the brave souls
As always, the event is organised by local cancer charity P.A.T.C.H. who donations are collected for from the ever-helpful bucket collectors along the seafront.
Please give generously as Ventnor Boxing Day Swim is the major fund-raising event for this wonderful local charity that helps with transport costs for those receiving treatment for Cancer on the mainland.
Get there early to secure your spot on the esplanade and don’t rush afterwards, there are plenty of great pubs, cafes and restaurants to stop and enjoy a drink in.
