THE community rallied to support the Seaford Lifeguards who braved the cold to take part in their annual fundraiser.

The New Year’s Dip on Sunday saw the group head into the sea, cheered on by members of the public and Seaford mayor Councillor Bob Allen was there to count the team down.

He said, “I was glad to support the enthusiasm of the young people, if not to participate on a cold day. The town appreciates all the good work the lifeguards do.” The team enjoyed mince pies and hot drinks to warm them up afterwards.

A beach collection raised £146 and more than £350 in sponsorship.
