Plucky youngster takes the plunge
Last updated at 12:04, Tuesday, 06 May 2008
A PLUCKY schoolboy has taken the plunge for charity.
Murray Murray, nine, completed a one-minute sponsored dip at Askam beach on Sunday.
Family and friends were there to cheer on Murray as he jumped into the sea at high tide.
The Askam youngster is hoping to raise around £200 for St Mary’s Hospice, in Ulverston.
The pupil of Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary School, Dalton, decided to raise money for the hospice as his nana Ingrid Belder volunteers there.
His mum, Lynn Murray, said: “I think it’s really good at his age that he wanted to do something like this.”
