Nude swimmers defy COVID and cold to support Lifeline

The annual Winter Solstice Nude Charity Swim will be swum this year on 21 June as planned, but founder Ian Lindeman was worried it wouldn’t – and that was before COVID-19, an event he didn’t live to see.

Chairperson of the now-named Ian Lindeman Memorial Nude Charity Swim, Ben Johnston, spoke to Ian a week before his death in November last year and assured him it would most definitely still go ahead.

More than 170 people took part in the swim last year and expectations were that the numbers would double this year. That won’t happen.
