New sponsor for Southern Dippers event

Wed, 02 Dec 2020

Santander International is to sponsor Southern Dippers, a group of Islanders who plunge into the water around the south coast on New Year’s Day in aid of Isle of Man charities.

Money raised from the 2021 dips will be going to Isle Listen, a charity that provides training in schools, the workplace, and the wider community, to empower and support Islanders with their mental health.

2021 marks the 20th anniversary of Southern Dippers, an initiative that has seen some New Year’s Day dippers complete over 80 swims, raising £60,000 to date for various good causes in the Isle of Man.

Last year’s final dip in Port Erin attracted over 300 swimmers.

The Santander Splash will take place on 1st January 2021, starting at 10am in Chapel Bay, Port St Mary, followed by Inner Harbour, Port St Mary at 10.45am, then Gansey Bay at 11.30am. The last swim will take place at 12.15pm in Port Erin Bay, when participants are invited to wear fancy dress.
