No one wants their child to grow up to be homeless on Christmas day.

Join us for a swim on Christmas day at 12 noon to make this a reality.

That’s much more than a gift.

The first Cork Simon White Bay Christmas Swim was 29 years ago…and its been going ever since. Friends and families from home and abroad have been taking a dip in White Bay every Christmas, taking time out on this special time of year.

The number of swimmers has grown each year. Since then, thousands of Christmas swimmers have raised over €250,000 so that people struggling to survive on the streets have somewhere to turn. Everyone’s welcome to White Bay on Christmas Day for our annual dip, or you can take a dip in your local area. We’d be delighted – and you’d be helping to make a big difference this winter for everyone turning to us for help.

Let’s make it the best ever Cork Simon White Bay Christmas Swim - That’s much more than a gift.
