Despite being one of the worst days of the year the Duck Dive Committee were able to hand the RNLI an impressive £1,700. The event, which took place on St Paddy’s Day at the Herring Pond in Portstewart was sponsored by Shenanigans who kindly laid on piping hot Irish Stew and other goodies for the swimmers who volunteered for a soaking on such a cold and wet day.

Maggie McWilliams of Shenanigans praised the enthusiasm and bravery of them all including the spectators who turned up in their hordes to lend support.
