Isle of Wight holiday cottages special – Boxing Day Swim!
Boxing Day sees the traditional swim at Ventnor. Organised by the PATCH charity (People’s Access To Cancer Help), money raised pays ferry travel costs for islanders diagnosed with cancer who need to go to the mainland for treatment. The event starts at 1pm – weather looks to be mild (13C) but windy. Around 100 brave people are expected to take part, many of which will be doing so in fancy dress – and thousands now come to watch!
