Spittal Boxing Day Dip

Sunday 26th December, Spittal Beach, Boxing Day Dip !!

POST UPDATED 07JAN 2022 : For this year’s Boxing Day Dip we were absolutely thrilled to announce we had several brave North Sea dippers doing it for our Cars and between them they raised an INCREDIBLE £5486.50! We’ve had to delay our THANK YOU post because the support for this event has been so huge and the funds have kept trickling in. It’s been so fantastic!! Many of the folk who were raising funds for our Cars at the Boxing Day Dip have been affected in some way by cancer and we’ve been so pleased our volunteer service has been able to assist them and their loved ones when they have needed us. A big shout out to The Galedin Vet (https://www.galedinvet.com/) Team who raised £2190.00 between them and a HUGE HUGE warm thank you to absolutely everyone involved with fundraising not only for our own charity but to all the charities that were being supported on the day, honestly you are all heroes and your support is tremendous!!

Well done to Lee and Chloe for getting everybody warmed up beforehand, our Cancer Cars Chair, Andrew Smith, was on hand to pipe everyone into the crashing North Sea waves. The fantastic folk at the Spittal Bowling Club (https://www.facebook.com/spittal.bowlingclub) very kindly allowed people to change and use their facilities to keep warm and dry (they also make a great cuppa!!) And of course our special thanks to the brilliant Berwick-upon-Tweed RNLI (https://www.facebook.com/RNLIBerwickuponTweedLifeboats/) crew who made sure it was a fun and safe event for everyone.

Well done and thank you once again all you bari Berwick Boxing Day charity Dippers !!!


Our supporters always go above and beyond in their awesome efforts to help our Cars. They jump from airplanes, they bungie and zip-wire, they knit and sew and bake amazing cakes, they swim, cycle, and run for miles and miles.

But there’s a few incredibly hardy fundraisers who each year rush headlong into the FREEZING North Sea on Boxing Day, and they choose to do it for Berwick Cancer Cars.

To show them your support here are our Amazing Berwick Cancer Cars Boxing Day Dippers and their Giving Page Links. We know they’d love to hear from you and see your messages of ‘Good Luck!’
