CHRISTMAS CRACKER CHILL SWIM
JOIN US FOR A FESTIVE SWIM IN AID OF THE MND ASSOCIATION
What better way to round off an awesome year of open water swimming than with one final festive swim event in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association! Join us as we dress up in our finest festive outfits and take to the waters for a sponsored swim followed by live music and a delicious hot supper set against the warm glow of our Heatwave firepit. Start the Christmas Season in style!
Looking for a great way to kick off your festive season in style? Join us for a charity Christmas Cracker Chill Swim, swimming into a festive sunset in the crystal clear waters of Vobster Quay.

Our Christmas Cracker Chill Swim is all about festive fun so we want to see each and every participant dressed up and hitting the water in their finest festive fancy dress. Whether you're a Santa, and elf or a reindeer is up to you!

After an invigorating winter swim, warm up and chill out with your swimming friends as you tuck into warming festive food and drink by a roaring wood burner and our beautiful Heatwave Firepit, accompanied by amazing live music from The Midnight Tides. When you book, you'll be able to choose between two very festive - and thoroughly delicious - menu choices created by Vobster swimmer Dagmar:

  • Tuscan Sausage & Bean Stew with Baby Potatoes (g/f)
  • Tuscan Bean, Winter Vegetable & Puy Lentil Stew with Baby Potatoes (vegan/gf)

Our last swim event of 2022 is the perfect way to kick off your mid-winter celebrations. Treat yourself or someone you know to an early Christmas present and experience the amazing open water swimming community at Vobster.

GET YOURSELF SPONSORED!
Our Christmas Cracker Chill Swim is all about having fun but it's important to remember why we're doing it - to raise bags of cash for the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association, a charity very close to our heart.

We actively encourage each and every participant to get themselves sponsored for this worthy event. Through JustGiving donations, participants can invite their friends, family and work colleagues to sponsor them to take to the balmy waters of Vobster Quay for a festive swim like no other. We've created a colourful poster which you can download and print out to help you in your fundraising efforts.
