Action Mental Health has launched this year’s Festive Sea Splash event and invites willing dippers to don their festive hats and make a splash for mental health. Taking place from 10am Sunday 11 December at Crawfordsburn beach, County Down, the pre-booked event is a fantastic way to get active, bring a group of friends together and enjoy outdoor headspace, while raising vital funds to support mental health services.
Since the pandemic people have realised the many benefits of using Northern Ireland’s beautiful stretches of open water and the connection this brings with others and with their own positive wellbeing.
There is also growing evidence to suggest that cold water immersion and sea swimming can have a positive impact on people’s mental health and wellbeing.
Open to adults 18 and over, the event carries a pre-registration fee of £10 and a minimum sponsorship of £50 per person. All splashers receive an AMH T-shirt, a Festive Sea Splash medal, hazard blanket and hot refreshment.
