Chatter Challenge Charities
By doing The Chatter Challenge, you are automatically contributing towards two of Chatter’s chosen charitable causes, which are currently Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) and Sea Shepherd UK. We will continue to support them for 2022/23. See the FAQ section for further details.
Other Charitable Causes
Many of The Chatter Tribe raise money for their chosen charitable causes during the duration of The Chatter Challenge. To raise money for a charity close to your hearts gives you an additional incentive to keeping swimming/dipping over the winter period. Perhaps you will obtain sponsorship per dip/swim over the winter period or simply by being brave enough to enter cold open water.
Impress everyone to raise more for your charity
Furthermore, your antics in doing the Challenge, will impress so many people that charities will benefit! Many charities have had their income streams dry up due to the challenging times that came with the pandemic. They will look in wonder at the amazing photos you add to the Facebook Daily Dipdates and see how much you are enjoying yourself!
