Elephant Dip 2023

This year’s 2wish Elephant Dip was our biggest yet! As more than 200 enthusiastic dippers gathered at Coppet Hall Beach, at Hean Castle Estate on October 22nd, to courageously take on our annual cold-water dip.

A highlight on the 2wish calendar, the Elephant Dip not only unites our cherished families, friends, and loyal supporters, but also promises a revitalizing plunge into the sea, accompanied by a morning filled with fun, music, and joy. Despite the relentless downpour, the event radiated an overwhelming sense of unity and positivity, leaving a lasting impression on all who participated.

We are extremely grateful for everyone that attended…

The event is growing every year and to see so many people, enjoying themselves, all for a good cause was amazing.I have never seen so many tutus and elephant ears, people made such an effort… 2wish supports families across Wales and to be able to host an event like this in beautiful Pembrokeshire is wonderful.Thank you to those who braved the chilly water and to those who fundraisers too.
