Please see http://www.scuba-santas.co.uk for more information!We are are a group of UK scuba divers brought together through a diving forum called Yorkshire Divers. Each year (ok this will be our second year) around christmas time we dress up in santa costumes to raise money for a charity.
In 2008 we raised a few hundred pounds for the RNLI with 8 participating santas, a viking, a snowman, and a fairy. In 2008 we had at 65 times the numbers raising over £1000. The event will be held at an inland dive site called Vobster Quay in Somerset. Each year the inland dive site were great supporters of this event and for this reason we return with happy memories.In previous years we have raised a total of over £2500. This year we are aiming for over £5000, at which point Vobster will donate £1000.
If you would like to take part, you will need to be a qualified SCUBA diver, but non divers are always welcome to support from the shore.
Taking place on 20th December, in a 36 acre
flooded quarry, the event raises funds for the RNLI by getting as many divers
underwater at the same, dressed as Santa. Particpants raise funds through
sponsorship, or directly through this site. The more cash raised on JustGiving,
the more Vobster Diving will donate to help this valued service for all sea
