THERE were some brave souls in Girvan on New Year’s Dayt who took a dip in the icy sea to raise funds for various good causes.

ON Girvan beach were a group of hardy fundraisers braving high winds and low temperatures on the first day of 2013 to take a dip in the sea at Girvan.

Stephen Flanagan and Allan McDowall took their brave dip in the cold briny to raise funds for the new Girvan swimming pool.

Craig Somerville and his colleagues from the RNLI in Girvan raised money for the lifeboat station.
