Shake off your clothes for Rennie Grove

The Great British Skinny Dip returns to Chalfont St Peter in August with the Diogenes Sun Club once again holding an event to raise funds for us.

So if you are looking for a challenge that takes you outside of your comfort zone and doesn’t involve jumping out of a plane or running 10K then the skinny dip could be just the activity for you!

Sally Hain and her partner Dave took on the skinny dip challenge in 2018. Sally said: “I’ve been involved with Rennie Grove for more than 20 years and wanted to do something new to help the charity. The skinny dip appealed to me because it brought back childhood memories of playing with the hose in the garden on sunny days. Everyone at the Diogenes Club was very friendly and encouraging and I soon felt at ease. I really enjoyed the dip and the tea and cake afterwards was an added bonus!”

The overall aim of the Great British Skinny Dip week is for people to develop a healthy attitude towards their bodies by realising that a healthy body doesn't mean looking like an athlete or a catwalk model. It's all about learning to love your body whatever it looks like.

So why not take a step towards building a more positive view of body image by signing up to Rennie Grove’s skinny dip challenge on August 2019? 

If you'd like to take part, then you will need to raise a minimum of £50 sponsorship that will help our nurses to continue to care for patients and families in Herts and Bucks.
