The North Sea Dip

Nearly 100 npower employees braved the North Sea on Tuesday 28 January, in a ‘dip for Macmillan’ off Sunderland's South Shields beach.

Meeting at 9.00am for the warm-up, everyone took part in a short jog and then a bracing short swim in the North Sea. Everyone was asked to raise a minimum of £50 each for Macmillan, with many participants being supported by colleagues, friends and family on the day – so good to see!

It's our 10th year of supporting Macmillan and we’re marking the occasion with 10 fund-raising challenges – this is the first. Through these, and our Coffee Morning and Christmas event, we hope to raise £150,000 that will help people affected by cancer manage their energy bills more easily.
