Skinny dip on the Northumberland coast set to return at Druridge
and live on Freeview channel 276
The popular annual mass skinny dip will raise money for Tyneside and Northumberland Mind.
Since 2012, the event has raised over £100,000.
People were invited to make a pledge of £15 to take part, with all proceeds go directly to Mind, to improve local mental health services and local mental health.
More than 1400 pledges have been made, putting the event on track to smash their fundraising target of £25,000.
Participants will get the chance to enjoy a sauna on the beach, provided by Earth Bond, fire dancing by Penella Bee, and breakfast provided by Re-f-use café.
Jax Higginson, founder and organiser, said: “It is a celebration of life, of nature, and of our own, unique, physical bodies. It's about taking a risk and embracing a moment of pure joy and freedom. It provides a rare opportunity to step into our vulnerability, confront shame and smash the beauty myth.
“NESD is not just a skinny dip. It's an experience! There is no better way to welcome the winter than stripping down to skin at sunrise and running wild and free into the North Sea with hundreds of other people.”
The NESD will take place on Sunday, September 24 at Druridge Bay just before sunrise at 7am.
