They have agreed to “go for a swim” off Irvine Beach, tomorrow on Easter Saturday, at 11am, to raise much needed cash for the two charities.
Candidate Ian Clarkson said: “During the recent Civic Pride Awards, I challenged Philippa to come for a swim in Irvine, as she had done it previously in Prestwick, and she has agreed.
"I will have “home advantage”, so I’m feeling good – I think!
"It would be good to see other people coming along too, and taking part, and enjoying the Challenge.
"It is good and a wee bit of fun, that politicians, from different Parties, can work together for the good of the people in their area.
"Hopefully, I can add to the £17,000 already collected for Cash for Kids at the Provost’s Awards.”
