Make Waves for Wishes

Virtual Festive Swim – Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Eve

Make Waves for Wishes – anywhere, anytime and enter our virtual festive swim on either Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Year’s Eve.

1000s of swimmers across the country take part in the festive swim over the Christmas period. The deeply rooted Finnish tradition has become a fun, festive dip and you can submerge yourself with the gift of giving by supporting our wishes.

There is NO entry fee or minimum sponsorship required. All we’re asking is for you to substitute one Christmas treat for a charity donation. Whether it is the cost of a bottle of wine or a pair of shoes, the funds will help turn dreams into reality for children with life-threatening illnesses.  

Take the plunge in a festive outfit or chosen swim wear and see how long you last in your local waters to help us bring a little more sparkle to sick children over Christmas.

Children must be accompanied by an adult and we strongly advise to bring thermals, a big warm jacket, woolly hat and a hot drink to warm you up after your big dip.

If you wish to enter or would like more information please contact Clare by email at [email protected] or call on 01202 514515.
