A mass skinny dip is aiming to break a world record and raise funds for chairty next month.

The annual North East Skinny Dip, founded by Jax Higginson, is now in its third year and will take place at sunrise on Druridge Bay in September, as close to the autumn equinox as is possible.

Nearly 200 dippers braved the North Sea last year and organisers are hoping for more this year to break the record.

A spokesman for the event said: “This event isn’t about looking good. It’s about taking a risk, celebrating our unique bodies, being close to nature, raising money for charity and maybe even breaking a world record.”

The profits from the event are split between The National Trust, whose land it is and who provide the event facilities, and MIND the Mental Health Charity who support those in crisis.
