Taking the plunge

On New Years Day Katharine Wilson went for a very cold swim at Barry Island to raise money for Beagle Welfare. Katharine has raised £472 so far, but she is keeping her fundraising page open a little while longer for any last-minute donations.

Thank you, Katharine, from all the hounds at Beagle Welfare.

Here’s what Katharine had to say about her day.

Well, I did it, I took the plunge today for Beagle Welfare. The sun was shining which certainly helped, however, I can 100% confirm that the water was absolutely freezing. There were over 1500 people taking part at Barry Island, South Wales. I was unable to take my two Beagles to the beach today but I managed to grab a photo with a few beagles that were on the beach. I am delighted to report that on the day my fundraising total was £472 but I know I will reach well over £500. I will keep my JustGiving page open for a while if anyone still wants to donate. I really hope the money will help you all at Beagle Welfare, thank you to the team for all their hard work caring for the beagles that are not so fortunate as mine.
