Last news years day they held the inaugural Mojacar New Years Day Swim.
We supplied the motor home as the mother ship/Canteen, toilet, shower etc.
You can read about it here We had a ball, and even though Elaine was quite unwell at the time, she got right into setting up the bar and supplying drinks with her friend Wendy.
It was a really great day so this year they want to make it even bigger and better.
I was contacted last night by the unofficial mayor of Mojacar Brad Swift asking if I would mind them calling it the Elaine McBride Memorial New Years Day Dip.
I was blown away and of course said it would be an honour, how amazing that Elaine made such an impact on the community even though we were only there for a few months.
They idea will be to sponsor the the people having a dip as in donate a sum of money for how many minutes they stay in the water. The money raised will go to two different charities, one is towards helping a local little lad who is battling a brain tumour and the other charity is paws/patas which is a local animal rescue charity .
I will be rattling the collection tin closer to the date.
Its going to be quite nice to get back such a lovely little community.
