Entry for the ‘Crimble Swimble’


Take the plunge and join us for a Charity Christmas Dip to help us support bereaved children, young people and families  – our first ever ‘Crimble Swimble’  If you are up for a challenge, look no further than an icy dip into the depths of Dosthill Quarry. Take a chilling dip as a newbie and get yourself sponsored too, or join us for this charity swim if you are an experienced wild swimmer. All challengers welcome to brave the chill!


Christmas can often be a difficult time for those who are bereaved, so don a blue Santa hat and join us at Dosthill Quarry to raise money to support those for whom this season is a blue time of year.

Dosthill Quarry is a hidden little lake not far from Kingsbury. It is an enclosed space within a quarry and is run by qualified and experienced staff. There will also be short induction before your dip (unless you have previously been to Dosthill Quarry). There are wetsuits and tow floats available to hire which are necessary if you are not used to open water swimming (more details in confirmation email). The team planning and organising this fundraising event are trusted volunteers and supporters of Edward’s Trust. Once booked, your contact details will be passed to a member of the volunteer team (Please note that this means that your confirmation email and further details will not come from a member of the Edward’s Trust staff.
