CHRISTMAS CHARITY EVENTS ARE GO!
JOIN US FOR FESTIVE FUN
AND DO YOUR BIT FOR CHARITY!
Ho Ho Ho! The festive season is fast approaching and we're excited to announce that our ever-popular festive charity swim and dive events are all set to return! Whether you're a fun-loving scuba diver or a slightly-bonkers open water swimmer, this is your chance to do something amazing for charity whilst having a whole lot of festive fun!
FOR DIVERS
VOBSTER SANTAS 2023
Ho Ho Ho! We're delighted to announce that Vobster Santas is back for another bumper bag of festive diving fun! To start your festive season in style, we'll be hosting a very special yuletide dive session open to all - members and non-members alike. Grab your fluffy beards, folks - things are gonna get jolly!

Vobster Santas is all about getting together for some festive diving fun and - of course - raising some serious cash for charity! Once again, we're aiming to raise money for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and Help for Heroes by encouraging each and every one of you to dress up in your silliest festive gear and get yourselves sponsored. Whether you're a 'Scuba Santa', a frog-kicking elf or a red-nosed reindeer, let's go crazy for Christmas!

We’re aiming to get as many sponsored Santa divers hitting the water at 10:00am in one very jolly - and very silly - group! Gates will open at 7:30am followed by a dive brief at 09:30am so there will be plenty of time to get parked up, kitted up and ready to hit the water! Can we beat our record of 185 Santa divers all in the water at once? With your help, we know we can!

FOR SWIMMERS
CHILL SWIM 2023
What better way to round off an awesome year of open water swimming than with one final festive swim in aid of charity! Join us as we 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. Let's start the Christmas Season in style!

Our Christmas Cracker Chill Swim is a great way to welcome the coming of Christmas. We actively encourage each and every swimmer to get into the spirit of the season by hitting the lake waters in their finest festive head gear. Whether you're a swimming Santa, and elf or a red-nosed reindeer, we can guarantee one thing - it's gonna be very silly and a whole lot of fun!

Christmas Cracker Chill Swim is a whole lot of fun but it's also important to remember why we're doing it - to raise bags of cash for very worthy causes! We're aiming to raise money for the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance and the Dorothy House Hospice Care by encouraging each and every one of you to get sponsored. Both charities are very close to our hearts here at Vobster Quay so let's show them both just how much we value everything they do!
