Jolly Brolly Helps Win Fancy Dress Competition
January 5, 2018
Here at Jolly Brolly, we love seeing your pictures and hearing your stories about what our umbrellas get up to after they leave Jolly Brolly HQ!
We heard from one of our customers this week who decided to do something very creative and turned some of our pink Jollybrolly umbrellas into Jellyfish.
Every year in the town of Broughty Ferry up in Scotland, to celebrate the New Year locals take part an annual challenge of taking a rather chilly dip in the waters of the river Tay in fancy dress. The event is watched by thousands of spectators every year but this year our very own Jolly Brollies were there too and even won a prize for the best fancy dress.
This is what they had to say:
"Every year I take part in the Fancy Dress Comp at Broughty Ferry New Years Day Dook, this year we went as a jellyfish family, as this summer I was very badly stung in the River Tay.
My two daughters and four granddaughters made up the family of Jellyfish, as they swam to the ladders in 2.7c, chilly but exhilarating. The brollies were much admired.
Heidi, my granddaughter painted the features, and I had stapled all the ribbons on.
Very simple yet very effective.
There was a photo in the local newspaper of the finished umbrella costumes.
I have one a prize for the last fifteen years with my fancy dress, very lucky! But then you go it to win it,”
We were so thrilled to hear this that we had to share it with you all. You can read more about the event here and if you are in the area then it's well worth a visit next year.
If you have used out umbrellas as part of a fancy dress costume or for your wedding we would love to hear about it and see your pictures.
