BRAVE fundraisers willing to crossdress for charity are being sought for a ‘frocks and socks’ sponsored walk.

The follow up to last year’s popular event is being organised by local charities Alive and Kicking and the Buttefly Hospice Trust on August 6.

Men and women must dress up in the opposite sex’s costume for the walk around Skegness, stopping off at pubs to make collections along the way.

The most glamorous entrant will be judged at a beauty contest on stage infront of the clock tower as part of the annual Illuminations Switch On.

Other charities who would like to take part are also welcome. They must pay a £20 registration fee but can keep any of the funds their entrants raise. If you would like to take part contact Tina Mellors at or Jane Parsons at
