All proceeds from ticket sales, e-auction income, and sales on the day (food, t-shirts, badges, hot drinks, cakes) in 2018 were split between these charities:
Home-Start Hertfordshire, Registered Charity No.1153287 http://home-startherts.org.uk/
Earthworks St Albans Registered Charity 1067139 ; http://www.earthworksstalbans.co.uk/
Rennie Grove Hospice Care Registered Charity no. 1140386 http://www.renniegrove.org/
Note that ALL money received is paid to the charities, costs are covered by our sponsors. So 100% of what you pay, for a ticket to plunge, a ticket to watch, a cup of tea… every penny is split between the charities.
Polar Bear Plunge Sponsors and Supporters
This year the Plunge is sponsored by Atlas Translations and … could it be you?
We are grateful for all support, both financial and moral!
A massive thank you to DigitalJen, who came to Plunge 2017 with her son and took many of the photos you see on this website; for Plunge 2018 she also set up this very website for us and we are thrilled to have her help and support. In 2018, she also brought her daughter along (and her son back again for photos – how amazing are his photos! So talented. https://www.gilessmithphotography.com/the-gallery/nggallery/polar-bear-plunge/Polar-Bear-Plunge-2018 ). Jen’s daughter tweeted throughout the day and was a social media whizz. Even the Polar Bear PA can’t quite do everything, and this family are incredible. Thank you, Smiths!
Huge thanks to the team over at Hour Hands! When our brains were frazzled looking at ticketing options, Christine Frith and her team took over and researched all the options way better than we could have ever done – in a fraction of the time. If you need to reclaim time or get that niggling task done at work or at home, we really recommend them. http://hourhands.co.uk/
