Almost 200 swimmers take the plunge in Cornwall charity skinny dip
Dozens of skinny dippers braved chilly sea temperatures
Nearly 200 skinny dippers braved chilly sea temperatures as they stripped off and bared all for charity.
The event, in aid of the mental health charity Mind, was held at Summerleaze Beach in Bude on Sunday morning.
Organiser Ruth Hunt was inspired by the work of the North East skinny dip – an established annual event now in its seventh year which has raised over £40,000 for Mind.
Teacher Ruth said she spends time simply listening to children who come to her with their troubles and sees first-hand how the pressures of modern day life are affecting the well-being of children and young people as well as adults.
