Lions Boxing Day Dip
Dec 26 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Lions Boxing Day Dip @ Bandstand, Whitby

When the weather outside is frightful, does a dip in the sea sound delightful?

It has become somewhat of a tradition in our beautiful little seaside town to enjoy a rather refreshing dip in the North Sea on Boxing Day morning. After all, what better way to cure your late festive blues than participating in the fun and friendly charity event in aid of a charity close to your heart and Whitby Lions which support many local community charities and good causes?

This fun and frantic event has now been running over the last 46 years, seeing numbers soar from a handful of brave local citizens to over 150 eager individuals travelling from far and wide, desperate to run into the wintry ice-cold waves of the North Sea. Although as you’d expect, you are more likely to see the big numbers witnessing the excitement from the side-lines.

The intention is of course that the Boxing Day Dippers get sponsored, with 80% of funds raised donated to the charity of their choice and the remaining 20% helping many local charities which are supported by Whitby District Lions each year. It is also a great opportunity to raise money for a special charity close to your heart to say thank you for all their efforts and support during the year. The Boxing Day has become a traditional family friendly event with many families meeting up after Christmas Day to spending a lovely Boxing Day morning together.

2017 saw over nearly £10,000.00 raised, with this year hoping to raise even more funds for local causes. The event kicks off at 10 AM on Boxing Day morning, with registration and fancy-dress judging taking place at the Bandstand, followed by a casual jog into the sea.

Registration and sponsor forms available from the following local business:

About Steampunk:
Steampunk is an aesthetic based on a mixture of science fiction and the 19th century style, more commonly known as the Victorian era. It combines old with new, so expect to see modern day items made with wood, brass and copper as well as classic Victorian clothing, such as top hats, waistcoats, goggles, corsets, bustles and fascinators.

There’s also a hint of the fantastical as the science fiction allows ray guns, spaceships, giant Octopuses and alternate realities. Whatever takes your fancy, there’s always time for a nice cup of tea and a slice of cake!
