Vobster Santas 2017





VOBSTER SANTAS 2017
FESTIVE FUNDRAISING FUN!


Ho Ho Ho! The continuing success of our world record-holding Vobster Santas Splash-in from its humble beginnings here at Vobster has inspired us to carry on with our traditional Christmas dive this year.

We are not alone either - a quick trawl of the global diving community reveals Santa diving events in Crete, Key Largo and Santa Cruz Island to name but three. Santa diving events are popular here in the UK too but none even come close to the size and shear fun of Vobster Santas - last year we smashed the world record by successfully getting 188 Santa divers into the water at once and it's a record we want to take even higher! Can we beat it? Of course we can - but only with your help.

Of course Vobster Santas isn't just about world records - it's also about raising some serious cash for charity. Once again, we're aiming to raise some serious money for the RNLI by getting as many sponsored divers and swimmers dressed in their finest Santa outfits onsite and in the water as we can. Every single day the brave men & women of the RNLI put their own lives at risk to ensure the safety and well being of all those that use and enjoy the seas around the UK.

Each and every Santa diver or swimmer will be invited to seek sponsorship for their endeavours through either individual sponsorship or via JustGiving. To help your fundraising activities, we've created a selection of posters you can download here. Before you start your fundraising, please take a few moments to register...

This year's event is all set to run on Sunday 17th December 2017 so sign up today!

Vobster Santas is all about having fun but it's important to remember that it's also all in a very good cause - we're seeking to raise as much money as possible in aid of the RNLI.

We activitely encourage all our Santa divers to do their bit by raising money for the event. You can do so by one of three different methods:
  • Direct Sponsorship - Simply download the Vobster Santas 2017 Sponsorship Form and then pester your friends, family and work colleagues to sponsor you for the event. It really is that easy!
  • JustGiving - Take all the hassle out of fund raising by simply pointing your friends, family and anyone else that you know to the Vobster Santas JustGiving page. They'll be able to donate online and will even be able to take advantage of GiftAid.
  • Text Message - Your friends, family and supporters can donate by text message by texting VSAN77 and an amount of £5 or £10 to 70070. For example, texting 'VSAN77 £10' to 70070 will donate £10 to Vobster Santas 2017 - it really is that simple.

Another outstanding weekend of diving with @indeepdivecentre; 10m+ vis, calms seas and more critters than you could shake a pasty at. If that sounds like your kind of weekend, I am running another one in September. Call Vobster and ask for Hugo. Safe #ukdiving #plymouth #vqdivers #iantduk #seeker #wreckdiving

Once upon a time a keen rescue diver arrived at Vobster. She completed dive master, technical and blending certs, plus IANTD instructor internship. We're proud to have been a small part of the Gemma Smith story and our stock of T Shirt in aid of her recovery have now arrived. Best wishes from us all, you can help by buying the T Shirt #gemmasmith #vobsterquay
