DOZENS of energy company workers braved the freezing North Sea to raise money for charity.

About 70 npower employees, including staff based at Sunderland, took part in the “jog and dip” fund-raiser in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

The event at South Shields was the first of ten fundraisers which are expected to take place during the year, with staff aiming to raise £150,000 to celebrate a decade of npower supporting the charity. Staff from the firm’s branches at Peterlee, Thornaby, Leeds and Hull donned fancy dress for the fund-raiser, with customer service director Gareth Pickles leading the group into the sea.
