VOBSTER DONATES £4000 TO CHARITY
DIG DEEP AND DO SOMETHING AMAZING THIS CHRISTMAS!
We're proud to support not one but FOUR very worthy charities at this year's festive charity swim and dive events on Sunday 10th December. To get the festive bauble rolling on what we know will be another epic fundraising total, we've dug deep and donated £1000 to each charity.
It's that time of year again when things get thoroughly festive and very, very silly! Yes folks, the Christmas silly season is almost upon us and that means only one thing - it's time to show some love to some very worthy causes by getting involved in our awesome festive charity events!

For Vobster Santas, we’ll be supporting the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and Help For Heroes - two charities very close to the hearts of all divers. Since our very first scuba diving Santas charity dive way back in 2007, you’ve helped us to raise over £40,000 for charity.

You crazy swimmers can get involved in the charity fundraising fun too! For our ever-popular Christmas Cracker Chill Swim event, we’ve chosen to support two equally deserving charities - the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance and Dorothy House Hospice Care. Last year’s Chill Swim was a real buzz, raising over £3000 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association - an amazing achievement!

WE'RE DOING OUR BIT! ARE YOU?
Once again, we'll be doing our gosh-darnedest to raise as much money for all four charities through your very generous donations and, of course, our ever popular prize draw raffles. To get the ball rolling on some epic fundraising, we’ve dug deep into our own pockets and donated £1000 TO EACH CHARITY. That’s a massive donation of £4000 split equally between the four charities. How’s that for a great start!

Fancy following our lead? Show your support to these great charities using these donation links at the bottom of this page. Or, better still, why not join us on Sunday 10th December and get your friends and family to sponsor your festive swim or dive?
