Vobster Santas 2018





VOBSTER SANTAS 2018
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 16th December 2018 so sign up today!

Get yourself Sponsored!



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 2018 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.

It might be January, but tucked away in a quiet corner of a platform, trydives are occurring as more divers discover what the buzz about the RedBare is all about. Five divers this weekend, five excellent trydives and five more divers enjoying the diving that the RedBare offers. #vobsterquay #somerset #exploring #wreck diving
