  • The New Year's Day swim raised 3,000 euros for 4 Paws animal charity

The New Year's Day swim in aid of the 4 Paws animal charity, a tradition started 13 years ago by Stacey Lloyd, took place in front of Pirpas Bar 69 in Fuengirola.

Twelve swimmers, some dressed as mermaids, Scotsmen and flower girls, took to the freezing sea water for twenty minutes. Afterwards they were revived with hot toddies and a raffle, auction and live music, helping to raise over 3,000 euros.

For further information on the charity and a chance to enter the raffle to win two nights on the Sunborn Yacht Hotel Gibraltar, go to Facebook 4 Paws Adoptions.
