The event, which saw them run into the sea, was held to mark Breast Cancer Awareness month.

It is estimated more than £400 has been raised from the venture.

Shop manager Debbie Cox said: “We got some very strange looks on the way back to the shop, because we were all wet.

“A lot of people just looked and thought we were on a hen party, but I hope we’ve raised awareness.”
