A dip with a difference is taking place next weekend on the north Northumberland coast to raise funds for a trio of good causes.

A onesie dip is taking place at Bamburgh Beach on Saturday, October 11, to raise money for British Divers Marine Life Rescue, the Farnes group of Beavers and Cubs, and Hessilhead Wildlife Sanctuary.

Organised by Lyndsey Morris, the event has just one rule – the whole of your onesie (all-in-one pyjama suit) must be wet.

It came about because, for the past two years, the Beavers and Cubs have wanted to help the seals in the area.

Many seals rescued in north Northumberland are rehabilitated at Hessilhead, so that’s why the Scottish centre is the third beneficiary.

On the day, registration takes place between 1pm and 2pm before the dip takes place at 3pm.

Adults must have a minimum of £10 sponsorship while children must have a minimum of £5 and be accompanied by a responsible adult who is also taking part.

There will also be refreshments available as well as a raffle and stalls.
