OVER 150 naked people splashed into the Firth of Forth at Aberdour on Sunday morning to help raise a massive £3,000 for charities.

The Noody Dook, which was out on by the Carnegie Dunfermline Rotary Club, follows the inaugural event which took place last year.

Organiser Lee Walls was delighted with the event's success which attracted men and women of all ages who came from as far as Yorkshire to take part.

"Not only did we once again raise a healthy sum for good causes, but everyone had a lot of fun too, while benefitting from the increasingly recognised health benefits of cold-water bathing," he said.

“Many of this year’s participants were returnees from last year’s event, but there were lots of first-timers too, which was great to see. A number of dookers enthused about the opportunity to feel liberated and body confident.”

Richard Nisbett, who travelled from Montrose, said: "I can only describe my experience this morning as utterly profound. We live in globally stressful times.

"It feels like the world is falling to bits but at 7am this morning, all of our differences were (literally) stripped away. It felt brilliant."

The event was preceded by a 15-minute clothed warm-up session of yoga on the beach led by a qualified yoga teacher, after which the dookers were serenaded into the water by a piper.

A home-baking stall on the Silver Sands waterfront did a roaring trade, adding to the funds raised from participants’ entry fees and sponsorships.

Carnegie Rotary Club supports a range of local, national and international causes financially and by volunteering members’ time and skills.

Local and rotary charities will receive funds from the Dook Good causes set to benefit from individual participants’ sponsorships include The Manda Centre in Hamilton and Cancer Research Scotland.
