Vobster Santa Dive 2016

January 3, 2017 by Tracy

This year’s Vobster Santa Dive has once again been hailed a huge success with hundreds of bearded Santa’s jumping into Vobster Quay on Sunday 18th December 2016 to raise money for charity.

Sponsorship money raised from the event once again supported the RNLI.  Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance volunteers attended on the day with an information and merchandise stand whilst selling tickets for a fantastic raffle which included prizes donated by some of the biggest brands in dive equipment.  This raised over £1,500.

Vobster Quay owner Martin Stanton said:

"It's been almost 10 years since the first charity Santa dive took place at Vobster Quay and every year the event gets bigger and bigger.  It's a superb way for divers to say a massive thank you to the both the RNLI and the Air Ambulance, two organisations that, together, are responsible for saving so many lives every year.”
