Polar Plunge

Things to do
Polar Plunge
Simon Thomas

Brave Brits who aren't phased by sub-zero temperatures will have a specially constructed arctic open-air pool waiting for them at this charity event, which aims to raise money for Special Olympics GB who support 8,000 athletes across the UK. Mini plungers under 12 who also want a taste of the icy action can have a go in an indoor-paddling pool while the fully grown adrenaline seekers submerge themselves in 20 tons of ice-filled water. Live music, dance and performances from the Pandemonium Drummers will warm up shivering swimmers who are encouraged to fundraise £50 per person for the cause. Fancy-dress is welcomed.
