€275,000 raised after 2,500 women take part record-breaking skinny dip in Wicklow
The organiser of a world record-breaking skinny dip, which saw more than 2,500 women strip off to the take the plunge, has hailed it an empowering experience in the fight against cancer.
A total of 2,505 women, aged from their late teens to mid-80s, took over a secluded beach in County Wicklow at the weekend for the charity record bid.
Many were cancers survivors, who used the mass naked swim as a way to overcome self-confidence issues related to mastectomy scars.
Collectively, the nude bathers smashed a record previously held by Australian skinny dippers in Perth, despite the water temperature being about 10 degrees colder in Ireland.
They also raised more than €275,000 for Irish cancer charity, Aoibheann’s Pink Tie.
