Santas take to the sea in Boxing Day charity swim

santa-swim-on-arranCarole Johnson, one of Arran’s newest lifeboat crew recruits, managed to persuade her family to join her for the annual Boxing Day dook in the icy waters of Lamlash Bay on Monday, Dacember 26 2011.

They all dressed as Santa and his helpers, and were joined by another 24 hardy souls for a short swim in the bay.

A large crowd cheered on the intrepid swimmers, and helped to raise much-needed funds for the RNLI.
