Folkestone and Hythe Lions Club

Folkestone, Hythe and District Lions Club has been raising funds for local charities and good causes for more than 40 years. The Donkey Derby and Boxing Day Dip has become some of the major events we run each year and your continued public support is greatly appreciated.  We have support both local causes and help in international donations.  We have raised large amount of money for Kent Air Ambulance alongside other local lion clubs

The Boxing Day Dip has become a way of bringing some mid-winter sunshine to lighten the shadows cast by the current uncertain state of our great country, and this year’s event looks set to continue that tradition The “dip” is a way of walking off a little of the Christmas excesses for those just coming along to watch, and a convenient way for individuals or groups of “Dippers” to raise funds, not just for our club, but also for a charity or good cause of their choice.

Dippers can use the enclosed form to gain sponsorship for this annual head-long rush into the sea from the Sunny Sands Beach, and we encourage them to don fancy dress with a cup for the best outfit. So, whether you are eight or eighty, why not grab a form, get some sponsors, and make this the year that you, too, get your feet wet.
