Londoners are being called upon to take an icy plunge this December, all to raise money for people experiencing homelessness across the country this winter.
The annual Crisis Icebreaker Challenge sees fancy dress-clad swimmers take on the challenge solo, by either jumping into the freezing waters of Brockwell Lido or swimming one width or taking part in the relay race as a team of four with each team member swimming one width each.
The registration fee of £28.87 equals the cost of reserving a place for someone who is homeless at one of Crisis’ Christmas centres. By taking part, you can help us support homeless people at the toughest time of the year – and?offer?a future away from homelessness.
Swimmers are also encouraged to get friends and family involved by sponsoring their involvement, as the money raised will go towards Crisis’ year-round services which help people to leave homelessness behind for good.
