RAIN didn't stop play as more than 100 fundraisers took to the water in West Bay.

The Boxing Day West Bay Wallow is in its 10th year and organisers said this year's event was a 'fantastic effort'.

Money raised from donations by spectators will go towards Round Table charities and participants also had the option of raising sponsorship money for a charity of their choice.

Chairman of Bridport Round Table Pete Dacey said: “I think after Christmas Day everyone wants to get out of the house and West Bay is a lovely spot for it because there's so much room for people to watch the thrill seekers who take to the water - and they always get a big cheer which gives them some encouragement.

“It was a fantastic effort.”

Simon Miles, one of the organisers, added: “There were around 110 people who took part in the swim, not much less than last year.

“We were a bit nervous because it was raining and there weren't many people about. But at around 11.30am people started coming out and the place filled up.

“Donation buckets went round and everyone was so generous. The money raised will be going straight back into the community to help good causes.”
