Night Glow: Take a dip in the dark

Posted: 13th February 2023

RUHX are launching their second cold water dip event, with a twist.  Taking place on Thursday 6 April, the Night Glow is a dip after dark, under the rising full ‘pink’ moon. With lit up floats and buoys, the lake at West Country Water Park will be transformed into a spectacle of twinkling lights as brave fundraisers enter the water.

Ellie Wilkinson, Events and Community Officer, RUHX said:  “The Night Glow is a fun and beginner friendly event, fully supported by lifeguards, for everyone to experience the benefits of cold water dipping. It’s going to be a magical night with dippers lighting up the lake for Royal United Hospitals Bath. This is a chance do something truly unique to raise funds for our patients and staff.”

The West Country Water Park has indoor changing rooms and toilets, including accessible facilities, providing a warm space to stay safe after exposure to the elements. After the dip, those taking part will be able to celebrate with a hot drink in the café, with the opportunity to meet like-minded people.

The Night Glow event is open to those 16 and over, costs £15 to register and participants are asked to raise a minimum of £75.  In return, RUHX will provide dippers with a branded swimming cap, t-shirt, a hot drink as well as fundraising support.

This is an opportunity to raise funds that will help the charity to give every patient extra extraordinary care and to support staff to do what they do best and furthering innovation within our hospitals.
