Hundreds of swimmers take to the icy cold water in Wales

Around 1,300 swimmers dove into the icy waters in Sandy Bay, Porthcawl on Christmas morning for the annual Porthcawl Christmas morning swim. The event has been running for 54 years, and it is one of the largest swims of its kind in the UK. They braved the cold for charity, with Prostate Cymru benefiting from the event. This was reportedly one of the largest turnouts in the history of the event. Lucy Jones said the swim was “incredible” and that the weather was lovely with not too much wind.
