Activity Base – New Years Day Dip 2018

Take a Dip with Southend RNLI!

Following a successful Boxing Day Dip in 2015 and 2016, it was only right to bring the event back for 2017, except, the tides didn’t want to play fair! For this reason, in 2017, it became the New Year’s Day Dip!

Whilst it wasn’t the driest of days, we had over 115 participants take part in the dip.

Photos from the various photographers present on the day can be viewed here.

We are proud to announce the Southend RNLI New Year’s Day Dip 2018 raised over £3,500 for the Southend RNLI Station! A very big thank you to all those who took part and raised money for our station!

Thanks to all the staff and volunteers who gave up their Boxing Day Morning (and in most cases, months of work before hand) to run the event.

Thanks also to Southend Coastguard, St John Ambulance, Iain Keenan & Co (water safety cover) and Ross Day Photography.
