Whilst many of us across the country were feasting on leftover turkey and watching TV with a box of chocolates balanced on our laps, the team at The Forshaw Group braved the cold to take part in the annual Boxing Day Dip for charity.
Despite freezing temperatures, the Boxing Day Dip took place at West Kirby Marine Lake and saw a crowd of about 100 swimmers plunging into the lake.
Participants were all socially distancing, staying safe in their bubbles, and taking all necessary precautions against Covid-19, so that the usually sociable swim was very different to previous year’s.
However, festive spirits were high and team members of The Forshaw Group were keen to dive in as part of its fundraising initiatives. We are delighted to have raised over £500 for cerebral palsy charity, Stick ‘n’ Step, who The Forshaw Group have supported for many years.
Liam Hanlon, managing director at The Forshaw Group, commented: “Despite the ongoing pandemic causing havoc for businesses and charities throughout the year, it was fantastic for us to still be able to take part in the Boxing Day Dip.
“The Boxing Day Dip was the culmination of a very successful year’s fundraising by The Forshaw Group for various good causes. This included The Great Glen Swim Challenge, the Cancer Research UK 300 mile challenge, as well as providing gifts for families in need across Knowsley this past Christmas.
“We are incredibly proud of our team for helping to raise tens of thousands of pounds in 2020, and we look forward to our upcoming fundraising events throughout 2021.”
