Polar Bear Plunge

01 Jan 2018 11:30 - 16:00
Polar Bear Plunge 2016

A fun family event on the first day of the year when hardy souls celebrate the New Year by taking a dip in icy water.

Sign up for an icy dip in the St Albans Diving Club's pool - in the name of charity and to earn your polar bear medal! All of the money we receive is split equally between Rennie Grove Hospice Care, Home Start St Albans and Earthworks St Albans. In 2016 and 2017 we raised over £10 000 and we are hoping to raise lots in 2018.

On site lifeguard and plenty of hot chocolate, cakes and spectators to cheer the plucky plungers on, this promises to be a fun-packed family event. Blow away those cobwebs and start the New Year with a SPLASH! All dippers will receive a medal and a hot chocolate with (or without) marshmallows.

Prizes for youngest plunger, and best fancy dress.

Music, facepainting, children's activities - and a bar. It's the perfect New Year's Day. Please join us and help us raise money for these fabulous charities.

We look forward to seeing you on the day
