Just wanted to draw attention to Gilly McArthur's amazing icy water swimming fundraiser for Red January.

Gilly, who was featured on this site as part of the Humans of climbing series last year, has swum outdoors in the Lakes every day in January to raise money for the mental health charity Mind.

Many of the days she has broken ice to enter the water and has swum through freezing slush. All this without a wetsuit - though usually with a woolly hat!

There are some fabulous pictures on her Just Giving page
