HOWEVER you chose to spend your Boxing Day this year, we bet it wasn't quite as adventurous - or as chilly - as this plucky bunch's plans.

Several brave swimmers took a dip in the waters of Loch Lomond last Thursday to help raise funds and awareness of new charity Civil Rights First (CRF).

The organisation, launched in 2018, helps vulnerable people access justice through an advice and advocacy service.

Following the event at Luss beach, CRF director Dionne McCabe said: "For our first ever event it was a success. We are hoping to run it every year and grow it from there, hopefully it will keep getting bigger and better.

“We did have some hardy souls but it was a bit of a freezing day. They had great fun and were all rewarded with hot tea and coffee afterwards.

“We held a race night back in October which raised over £2,000, but the Boxing Day dip wasn’t so much about the money, it was just to raise awareness of the charity.

“Those who took part said it was invigorating and for a good cause, rather than sitting on the couch all day they felt like they had done something amazing.

“I was planning to take part but someone had to take the photographs.

“Thanks to everyone who took part for their support.”
