Boxing Day Swim Aberdeen Nippy Dipper

Information and photos of the Boxing Day swim at the beach organised by the Aberdeen Lions Club to raise funds for charities

Aberdeen Beach Christmas Sponsored Swim

The Boxing Day Swim Aberdeen is a fun fundraising event which is organised by the Aberdeen Lions Club and is known as the Nippy Dipper. The chilly North Sea water is a great way to clear the Christmas indulgences and a fantastic way to raise funds through sponsorship for your charity. Many of the Nippy Dippers enter the freezing water of the North Sea in fancy dress to add more fun and colour to the event.

My new novel:

The Fence Aberdeen Zombie post apocalyptic military survival Novel Book

The Aberdeen skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

Aberdeen Lions Nippy Dipper

It usually takes place at the Leisure Centre Beach Promenade from 10:30am on the 26 December. About 200 swimmers take part in this fun nippy dip raising over £10,000 for local charities. They are usually led by an Aberdonian celebrity and in the past this has included Commonwealth Games swimming champion David Carry, his girlfriend Keri Anne Payne, his father the jeweller Peter Carry and sister Malena.

Fancy dress costumes on this 26 December event included Wonder Woman, bride in white dress and bouquet, lots of people wearing Santa hats, black suits, a family of Smurfs, Superman and a Borat look alike in a skimpy mankini.

Aberdeen Lynne Golden Retriever

Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.

We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.

The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:

"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."
