Event Timetable

  • Registration opens at 9am 
  • Safety briefing 9.50am 
  • Dip 10am!

Your entry fee only covers the cost of putting on the event, raising funds for St Margaret's Hospice Care will ensure your neighbour, your friend, and your family can be cared for when they need it most.

This year we would like to raise £10,000 which could pay for 100 Specialist Community Nurse visits for patients being cared for at home across Somerset. 

If you would prefer to make a donation rather than raise sponsorship, you can do so when booking your place. 

We are also accepting clothing donations on the day! Pop along with your bagged goods to our easy drop off point alongside the sea front.
