Dip in the Nip Kerry in aid of Recovery Haven Cancer Support House


Cancer support charity, Recovery Haven Kerry is thrilled to join forces with Fenit-based Wild Water Adventures to organise Kerry’s first ever, women’s-only charity Dip in the Nip this September!

The exciting collaboration is the first of its kind in the Kingdom, where women of all ages are being invited to bare all and take to the water on September 18th 2021 to raise funds for the well-known cancer support charity.
Billed as a fun, exciting and empowering event for women right across the country, this fundraising event is open to all women – including those who have experienced cancer themselves, those who are supporting a friend or family member on their caner journey or those who want to remember and honour a loved one who they lost to the disease.

The location of the event will be kept top secret until a few days the event, but organisers are promising a truly fun and exhilarating morning for all involved with music, refreshments and some great prizes up for grabs after the dip.

“This is a completely new departure for us here at Recovery Haven Kerry, but we are really excited at the thought of all amazing women of Kerry and beyond coming together in such a novel way for charity,” said Recovery Haven Kerry manager, Siobhan MacSweeney. “We truly hope that women everywhere will embrace this fun, empowering and important event and make it a truly memorable one for everyone involved.”

The team at Wild Water Adventures are equally excited about the upcoming event.
“We had the pleasure of running a Wild Swimming pilot project with five wonderful ladies from Recovery Haven last year and spent six Saturdays exploring, having wild swims, eating cake and laughing. To say it was the most personally rewarding work we have ever done is no small statement, as we have worked with many types of groups in many different outdoor settings for many years. We are hugely impressed with the work Recovery Haven does and are honoured to help in our own small way.” 

Registration, priced at €40 (plus booking fee), is now open through Eventbrite https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/kerrys-first-dip-in-the-nip-tickets-164974191247 on all Recovery Haven and Wild Water Adventure’s social media platforms and everyone who signs up will receive a custom swimming cap, a medal to mark their participation and will be automatically entered into a draw for some great prizes.

Pre-registration is vital, however, as entries cannot be processed on the morning of the event.
