Loony Dook

1 January 2019, 12.30pm

The Loony Dook continues its New Year’s Day tradition at South Queensferry. In the shadow of the Forth Bridges, the dippers in fancy dress, scantily clad or even fully clothed from the night before will brave the chill to raise money for charities while shaking off their Hogmanay hangover.

£1 from every ticket bought is donated to the RNLI:  The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea. Every day of every year, people of all backgrounds get into danger in the water.  Your support means their crews can save lives quickly, safely and effectively.
