The WITHYBUSH Department of Pharmacy exceeded its goal by raising funds for the cancer charity Maggies.
The Whitybush Hospital Pharmacy Department took up Maggies’ challenge to “take a dip a day in May” in an open water area to raise money for Maggie’s Swansea.
The original target set by Maggies was £ 150 for everyone who took on the challenge.
Withybush’s pharmacy department absolutely bulldozed that figure and raised over £ 500.
Joanna Rees is one of 20 participants to dip her toes in the cold waters off the Pembrokeshire coast, all with the help of charity.
Joanna said, “As part of their ‘May Day Dip’, the pharmacy department at Withybush Hospital is currently swimming in the sea every day to raise money for Maggies Cancer Charity.
“As a team, we swam in the sea every day in the hopes of raising as much money as possible for the Maggies Cancer Charity.
“We try to raise as much awareness as possible.”
A spokesperson for Maggie’s charity said: “We ask swimmers to simply swim in the sea / river / open water of their choice, for as long as desired, once a day until ‘to May 31.
“We are asking you to commit to a fundraising goal of £ 150 to help us continue to support local people affected by cancer, their families and friends. Once the fundraising goal is reached, we will send a Maggie Medal. ”
