If you're a follower of Lee on social media, you'll know of his discovery last year of the 'joys' of cold water swimming and his determination to spread that joy far and wide! He has encouraged friends, fellow cast members and even a few fans to try it.
He is now turning it into a fund-raising activity, challenging Penni Bubb and Amanda from Mushroom Theatre Company and Equal People Performing Arts to join him for a dip in the sea off Essex on Thursday 23 February!
It will be Penni and Amanda's first cold water swim and they are starting to acclimatise with cold showers before hitting the open water which, in February, is expected to be around 4 degrees!
Lee has long been a very active patron of both Mushroom and Equal People and takes his commitment to new levels with this latest venture! You can read more and donate at JustGiving and there will no doubt be updates nearer the time and on the day via Instagram and Twitter!
