Solstice Splash

We invite you to take the plunge with us at Mersey Bluff Devonport to raise money for school and family services including school chaplains, student and driver mentors, mental health first aid training and school breakfast programs.


8am on Saturday, June 18.


We need to raise vital funds to continue the incredible work being undertaken in the North West through Devonport Chaplaincy, from school chaplains to breakfast programs, learner-driver and student mentoring, mental health first aid training and leadership development.

Swimming in cold water is supposed to be good for you.

Because we can!

What now?

Register individually or as a team below (see START FUNDRAISING) and raise a minimum of $50 per splasher for the privilege of taking the plunge.

We will email you when your profile is live.

Use email and social media to get sponsors by linking to your profile.

All splashers get a free bacon and egg roll courtesy of our partner, Devonport Surf Lifesaving Club, who will also supply water safety and first aid on the day.

The highest fundraisers will receive a $100 meal voucher for two at Drift or a fabulous hamper from Hill Street Grocer.

Sponsors of the inaugural splash are Drift, Hill Street, and Impress Press.
