Annual Lifeguard Christmas Day Dip 2023 update

Southsea beach cafe

As many local residents are aware, the Southsea Coastal Scheme project works is currently taking place and the beach and promenade directly outside the Lifeguard HQ is closed to the public until December 2024. Unfortunately, this means that the annual sponsored and fundraising festive dip in the sea cannot go ahead in the usual location and using the Lifeguard Headquarters facility as a base.

Therefore, the Charity Club have decided to hold a low-key event on the beach near the Southsea Beach Cafe, allowing those who would like to take part in the chilly dip an opportunity to come along and join in.

The traditional ‘fancy dress’ theme will not happen this year due to the fact that anyone taking part will need to change on the beach or under a shelter with no fixed changing facility or showers available, but if anyone feels the need to dress up in any way then they are most welcome!

The dip will commence at 11am on Christmas Day at the east side of the pier, and any members of the public are welcome to join us. There will be no sponsorship forms, but instead supporters will be able to help the charity by giving on the day – fundraising will be available in the form of a collection box on the beach for cash collections, Justgiving donations online and a card reader available on the day for any contactless donations. Our Justgiving page is http://justgiving.com/psvlor donations can be made through our website portsmouthlifeguards.org

We welcome seeing as many supporters on the day to celebrate this festive event. Further information and queries can be made by emailing info@portsmouthlifeguard.org

  1. Very good blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a
    paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Cheers!

  2. Author, thank you very much. If you please, make the font on the blog slightly larger. And then the eyes already hurt.

  3. Excellent blog you’ve got here.. It’s hard to find good quality writing
    like yours nowadays. I really appreciate individuals like you!
    Take care!!
