Adventurous Anstruther fundraisers have taken a massive leap into the charity record books, following a well-known annual event.

The Boxing Day leap from the harbour, into the icy depths of the Forth, known as the East Neuk Dook, gathered a superb total of £7700.

The chosen charity was Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Fife and, in addition to the traditional festive jump, another one was held in January, as a few seasoned participants, including principal organiser Kevin Corps, were unable to be there in December.

Kevin said everyone was grateful to the participants for their efforts in raising “this fantastic amount”.

Also praised was the support crew, featuring the East Neuk First Responders, the squad at Anstuther Lifeboat, the administration team, led by Kevin Lancaster, and The Bank restaurant for its sponsorship and refreshments.

This year’s event will take place on Boxing Day in aid of Anstruther Lifeboat, which the Dook supports every five years – and also which, this year, celebrates its 150th anniversary.
