The Real Food Café, Tyndrum raised £2,572 for local charities with its traditional Boxing Day Fancy Dress Dip.
A small but hardy group of customers and locals joined The Real Food Café’s owner Sarah Heward in battling the hostile conditions of Storm Barbara with a charity dip in the freezing waters of the River Lochay. Decked out in fancy dress, participants jumped into the water off the banks of the Killin Hotel. Their efforts exceeded last year’s total and beat the 2016 target. The event was held in cooperation with the Killin Hotel, and the money raised will benefit the PSP Association and The Falls of Dochart retirement Home in Killin.
Sarah Heward, owner of The Real Food Café told the Stirling Observer: "We’re pleased with the way it went, especially as the weather was so bad and the water was much colder than last year. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. It’s a good fun event and I’d like to thank everyone who was involved. Hopefully we can have even more people come along next year and raise even more money.”
