SANTANDER SPLASH 2023 DETAILS The Santander Splash fast approaches for the Southern Dippers. They will have 91 dips under their belt at the end of the day, raising over £69k.

Santander International have generously provided main sponsorship for 3 years and without such support, the event would struggle so the organisers are indebted to their backing of this and many other Island-wide community initiatives.

It all started with a small group of 7 in a pub and now attract over 250 dippers and hundreds more out to support them.

The chosen charity for 2023 is Isle of Man Foodbank, a Manx charity that provides crisis support in the form of food parcels to families and individuals in a time of need.

Lenny Conroy, event organiser for Southern Dippers, said: “The Santander Splash is an increasingly popular event which has helped us raise a significant sum for Isle of Man charities. The Isle of Man Foodbank was an obvious charity for us to support this year as many more Isle of Man residents are turning to the facility for support due to the rise cost of living. 

This year we are asking all dippers to bring an item of food to donate to the Isle of Man Foodbank in hope of helping the charity even further by contributing to the restock of their shelves following the festive period.”

James Geldart, Managing Director, Santander International Isle of Man Branch, said: “We are delighted to support this community event once again. What better way to start 2023 whilst helping raise money and donations for the Isle of Man Food Bank who provide invaluable support in these particularly challenging times. “All funds raised from the Santander Splash 2023 will be going to the Isle of Man Foodbank. Donations are gratefully received, and commemorative T-Shirts will also be available for a donation. All participants enter the sea at their own risk.
