Boxing Day Dip Registration OPEN!

It has become somewhat of a tradition in our beautiful little seaside town to enjoy a rather refreshing dip in the North Sea on Boxing Day morning. After all, what better way to cure your late festive blues than participating in the fun and friendly charity event in aid of a charity close to your heart and Whitby Lions which support many local community charities and good causes?

The intention is of course that the Boxing Day Dippers get sponsored, with 80% of funds raised donated to the charity of their choice and the remaining 20% helping many local charities which are supported by Whitby District Lions each year. It is also a great opportunity to raise money for a special charity to say thank you for all their efforts and support during the year. 2017 saw over nearly £10,000.00 raised, with this year hoping to raise even more funds for local causes.


Sponsorship forms are available from The Whitby Pet Shop, 15 Station Square, Whitby or if you are unable to get into Whitby, please contact Lion Chris or Brian Harrison by email at or on 01947 897249 who can email a form to you or for any further details. If you don’t fancy raising sponsorship money, you can always register on the day at our registration tent which costs £20 per person. Please note that you must be registered to take part as our insurance does not cover anyone who is not registered.
