Let’s start at the beginning with the need to know information. Simply put, we need you! Join us on our charge into the sea on Christmas Day morning at 10:30am (registration from 9.45) and help us to raise £50,000 for Macmillan Caring Locally. Yes we may be crazy, but it would be crazier not to join in the fun!
The 2017 dip is a big one for us all at HQ, it’s our 10th anniversary! That’s right, we are 10! The ‘brave 7’ otherwise known as those who have been there from the start, will be dipping for their 10th time this Christmas Day!
This will undoubtedly be a bumper year as we celebrate 10 years of raising money for a great cause. So this year for the first time we are encouraging all dippers to get a team together, co-ordinate your outfits and #themeyourteam.
Let’s talk targets. Do we have what it takes to achieve?
· 10 years
· 1,000 Participants
· £50,000 in Donations
We are totally hopeful that this will be achievable if all dippers collect just £50 of sponsorship each. Get your friends, family, colleagues and neighbours to dig deep!
To make it even easier, you can set up a Just Giving page where you can collect donations HERE... Don’t forget this is shareable on social media too – just tag us in your mentions so that we can give you a shout out. (Facebook: @Whitechristmasdip Twitter: @Whitexmasdip).
We are so proud that over the 9 years we have been dipping we’ve raised in excess of £130,000 for the Macmillan Unit in Christchurch Hospital, which has helped so many people in our local area who need specialist palliative care.
Macmillan Caring Locally is not connected or affiliated with the national charities Cancer Research or Macmillan Cancer Support. The local Unit provides specialist palliative care to patients with advanced, progressive, incurable illnesses with complex symptoms. For more information on this, visit our Why We Do It page.
Taking in some sea air and building up your appetite for that epic roast dinner is the best way to start your Christmas Day. Why not join 1,000 of us and charge into the sea and raise money for this amazing cause. You know you want to!
