Organisers are hoping for quite a crowd on February 26th to witness the first instance of what may become a new annual St David's Day tradition.
On Sunday the 26th February at 11.00 sharp. Gwenno Dafydd will sing the Saint David’s Day Anthem before charging into the sea with her fellow DaffyDippers.
Sian Richardson, of the Bluetits, a local chill swimmers club has said of this event:- “It means the world to me that The Bluetits are going to be part of the DaffyDips4Dewi event. We began with two people dipping on a Pembrokeshire beach and we became 100,000 people dipping on beaches, in rivers and lakes all over the world. I hope to see pictures of thousands of daffodil hats bobbing in the water on Sunday the 26th."
If you are a Pembrokeshire Person and you fancy a DaffyDip4Dewi then come to the Whitesands Bay beach on Sunday the 26th February at 11.00 a.m.
Organisers would like to stress that DaffyDips4Dewi can be done anywhere throughout the world and Wales in lakes, beaches and ponds. Get a gang of DaffyDippers together and take a photograph to share with the world. Remember to use the hashtag after your location e.g. Jackson Bay DaffyDippers
If immersing yourself in freezing cold water does not appeal why not pop down to Whitesands ( if you're in the area) to give moral support to our intrepid army of Dippers. Be tere on day one
You are very welcome to set up your own event, however doing a DaffyDip4Dewi is entirely at your own risk. Please make sure that you are fit and well enough to do this. YOU are responsible for your own well-being.
Take warm clothing and a warm drink for after the event. If you want to have the Saint David’s Day Anthem as part of your event (get a local school or choir on board) the Saint David’s Day Anthem can be bought here:
