The Lions Club of Llandudno have for over 25 years, organized the annual Boxing Day Sea Dip. The dip regularly sees over 100 dippers taking the plunge into and icy Irish Sea.

 With a temperate of 9 degrees Celsius, as soon as the dippers are in -- they are out again!

This year we had 130 brave (some may say barmy) dippers take to the water. Many of them raising money via sponsorship for their own charities and good causes. Still may will go into the water just for the fun of it (why oh why!) 


For more dip photos please follow this link to our which will be available here shortly.


Many thanks to Mr Greg Robins for taking the official dip photos.

This years event is raising money for Crohnes Desease and the Cleft Lip and Pallet Association. and other local charities and organizations. Once again the St Georges Hotel host the event in its new facility - The Menai.

With entertainment in the hotel and Christmas Carols we try to bring a really warm spirit to the day even if the weather is cold.
