Take the plunge for the RUH

On Sunday 4 December, RUHX are asking supporters to make a splash at their brand new event, the Polar Plunge.

Taking place at the West Country Water Park, the Polar Plunge is an opportunity to do something unforgettable this Christmas, and take a dip in the cold lake water to raise funds for the Royal United Hospitals Bath. The event is for everyone, from seasoned swimmers who aren’t ready to hang up their wetsuits yet, to total beginners looking to try a new hobby. You’ll be joined by the Water Park staff and the team at RUHX to make sure you are safe and supported on the day.

“We know that cold water dipping has a wealth of wellbeing benefits, and we want to put on an event that gets people feeling good, trying something new and joining a like-minded community. There’s no distance or swimming target, or length of time people need to try and stay in the lake – we’re just asking people to experience cold water for the first time in a safe setting. All funds raised will go towards supporting our hospital over the Christmas months.” – Ellie Wilkinson, Events & Community Officer, RUHX.

Those brave enough to register for the event will receive: 

  • a #TeamRUHX swimming cap

  • a hot drink to warm you up

  • a hot BBQ meal to refuel you

  • a #TeamRUHX t-shirt

  • fundraising support from our expert team

RUHX is asking individuals to raise £100 to take part, which will help the charity to give every patient extra extraordinary care, and to support staff to do what they do best.
