For the past 15 years The Neptune Hall pub in Broadstairs has helped raise money for the Childrens Liver Disease Foundation. On the 1st of January every year, roughly 70 people join The Neptune and participate in the New Year’s Day swim. For those of you unfamiliar with the charity, the Children's Liver Disease Foundation was formed in 1980 and is a UK charity taking action against the effects of childhood liver disease as well as providing information, emotional support, research funds and a voice for all affected.
This was our 2nd year helping to promote awareness of this unique charity plus add to the donations Jill and Ken, proprietors of The Neptune, helped raise. We had made custom Hi-Way Services Ltd T-Shirts featuring the charity logo and offered to donate £10 for every swimmer who wore the shirt. We are still awaiting final confirmation for the total number donated, will update when confirmed.
A massive well done to the following for the fantastic efforts this New Year’s Day in braving the freezing temperatures for a fantastic cause!
