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 did 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 were 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. And we are delighted to now confirm we have just got it!”
