Islanders invited to take the plunge on Valentine’s Day

Islanders asked to show their love for Jersey Hospice Care

A Valentine’s Day swim has been organised on Sunday 14 February, starting at 10.30 from The Wayside in St Brelade. While the sea might be a bit cold, they are hoping for a good turn-out.

Linzi Duckworth, Community Events Fundraiser for Jersey Hospice Care, said, ‘If you were tempted to have a dip on Christmas Day, but didn’t get round to it, (or loved it so much you want to do it again!) here is the perfect opportunity for you to make a splash and raise some cash for a good cause. Every penny raised will go towards supporting people in the island, free of charge, who are coming to terms with the impact of a life limiting illness, either for themselves or someone they love.’

Further information, including a sponsor form, is available on the charity’s website Donations will also be collected on the day.
