Sunday 13th December 2020 was supposed to be the date of our annual Vobster Santa dive here at Vobster Quay. Due to UK Government guidelines on social distancing, we were unfortunately forced to cancel. This is the first time in 14 years that we haven't been able to gather everyone together for one last sponsored festive dip before the Christmas break.
Despite this unavoidable set back, we'd still like to raise some money for the two great charities that we support through this event - the Royal National Lifeboat Institution
and the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance
So please dig deep and - in the spirit of Vobster Santas past - give generously to these two very worthy charities. If you are able to donate anything to either of these charities, we have set up two JustGiving pages...
TO BE WON!
There's nothing we love seeing more than the sight of so many divers dressed in their finest Santa suits. To lessen the withdrawal symptoms, we'd like to run a fun little competition on our facebook
page with three Vobster memberships (or renewals) worth £ 45.00 each up for grabs!
All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is to post up your favourite photos from Vobster Santas past - we'll award the prizes to our three favorites that best sum up the fun and generosity of all the divers and swimmers that have participated in Vobster Santas over the past years!
We wish you all a very merry and very festive - if somewhat socially distant - Christmas. We'll be open for most of the Christmas break and we look forward to welcoming many of you for a festive dip. Our festive opening hours
are online now.
