Shaking like a jellyfish

Shaking like a jellyfish was all in a good cause for these supporters of Parkinsons New Zealand’s Kapiti-Horowhenua division. The seven (fool)hardy supporters were among the 70 people who took part in Sunday’s More FM Midwinter Swim at Waikanae beach. The group raised around $1400 for people with Parkinson’s in the Kapiti/Horowhenua region.
