Orkney Boxing Day Dip

Sea Cadet Hall
Old Scapa Rd
Kirkwall, KW15 1SD
United Kingdom

The ever popular Scapa Bay Boxing Day Dip Wi' a Nip is back again for the seventh year running.

As always, we are inviting all of our bravest supporters to come and join the fun to raise funds for children and young people with cancer, and their families. 

The challenge

On Boxing Day turn up ready to wash away the Christmas cobwebs whilst helping support children and young people with cancer. 

Fancy dress is optional. Getting cold and wet is not. 

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager, Peter Logie said: "We've had six great events with over £88,000 being raised. There is always a huge buzz about the place which we’re looking to repeat this year.  

It’s great to bring such a fabulous event to Orkney and I’m sure people will turn out in great numbers as they do all over Scotland for this type of activity.

This is a real community event and my thanks go out to Highland Park and our local organizing team led by Brian Flett, the local Rotary Group and the Sea Cadets. Orkney Aggregates kindly provide a wonderful vehicle for the event at Scapa Bay."

Get involved

Registration for the dip will take place on the day at the Sea Cadet Hall and will start at 1.00pm.

Participants are asked to raise a minimum of £50 each, but everyone is welcome to come along and enjoy the fun.

Entry forms for the Scapa Bay Dip are available from Bruces Stores, Scottish Hydro, the Pickaquoy Centre in Kirkwall and John Rae Store in Stromness.
