Said Dee Featherstone” This is the 7th Strip and Dip to be held. BUT, because of the Covid-19 crisis in relation to travel restrictions, etc. this year we have to go Virtual! But that will not stop us!. The Strip and Dip started seven years ago. I was undergoing treatment for aggressive breast cancer and had a brainwave after my mastectomy to do something fun – and raise money for childhood cancer! The event itself has grown from 50 women in Year 1, to 2,500 women in Year 6 – a huge achievement. As well as raising over €780,000 in total was a major achievement. This year we are going for a virtual Guinness World Records title attempt for the Largest Virtual Dip with the title Most photos of people in water uploaded to Facebook in one hour.
