Swimmers The Friday Dippers

A group of 60 mums from Brighton took part in a 5k sponsored swim to support children's mental health after lockdown.

The Friday Dippers' fundraising journey

This amazing group of 60 mums from Brighton have been meeting weekly to chat and swim in the sea. After lockdown, they decided to start this tradition again, knowing how much it helps them all to look after their mental health.

After seeing the impact of lockdown on their children’s mental health, they decided to organise a sponsored 5K swim.

By participating in groups of eight, they completed the swim and have raised an astonishing £17,000 for us.

Why did you fundraise for us?

We chose YoungMinds because as mothers we were becoming increasingly aware of the pandemic toll on our young people and we wanted to support a charity that was working to provide help and assistance immediately to young people and their families.
