Mike (northernpies.blogspot.com) has quietly been raising cash in aid of the charity Mind. One somewhat amazing thing he has participated in has been the North East Skinny dip. The one downside was that Mike felt a tad awkward being on his own.
Initially I offered to go along to give moral support and hold his towel. However, after some serious thought and feeling it a little unfair to let Mike do all the hard stuff, I also have signed up to do the dip.
For an introvert like me, with many issues, it was a hard choice. However, I am going for it. Anyone wanting to donate a few shekels to a worthy cause may do so on the following link.
