Fancy doing something different? Macmillan Cancer Support is looking for teams of four to bomb off the top diving boards – in fancy dress at Ponds Forge in Sheffield!
The World Water Bombing Championships, now in its ninth year, will be back with a splash on 1 May 2013 at 6.30pm, and promises to be the biggest event yet! Bombers can get creative with fancy dress and team names for this wet and wonderful way of raising money for people affected by cancer.
The event is sponsored by Matthew Twigg Foods, eBECS and Sheffield International Venues.
Rob Turner, Fundraising Manager for Sheffield explains, 'The Bombers will be launching themselves of either the 1m or 3m diving platform, for this fun event which brings lots of people together to raise money for Macmillan. The costumes bring laughs and some of the themes teams come up need to be seen to be believed. Some of the ideas these teams have come up with for costumes need to be seen to be believed!'
Teams are graded based on style, splash and presentation by a judging panel which includes two Macmillan nurses and a mystery guest! But if you don’t fancy getting wet you can come down and lend your support for this fantastic event. A PUKKA pie and peas will also be available at the discount price of £2.50 for hungry bombers and their supporters.
To register each teams to pay a £20 registration fee and raise a minimum of £376 sponsorship -. £376 could fund two Macmillan nurses for a whole day, giving vital help and support in Sheffield. Spectators who don’t fancy flinging themselves off the diving platforms can watch for a suggested donation of £2 to Macmillan.
