Gemma - Fundraising for the M.A. at the Loony DookWe took part in The Loony Dook in the Firth of Forth on New Year’s Day. It’s an annual event where the participants parade through the town in fancy dress costumes, then go for a dunk in the very chilly North Sea to welcome in the new year.

We chose to raise money for the Miscarriage Association as had suffered a silent miscarriage in November 2013. I wanted to bring some positivity out of this horrible experience and raise awareness of the charity as one thing I was startled by is how common miscarriages are, yet how awkward people get when the subject is raised.

    What a fantastic, positive way to start 2014. Have to admire your bravery in swimming at that time of the year!
