Could you be brave enough to "take the plunge" into the chilly waters of the Portishead Marina to be rewarded with the unique experience of being rescued by an incredible life-saving superdog?


Back for the tenth year, this popular event, creates a big splash for both the participants and dogs alike.

Take the Plunge is an all inclusive event for children (8 years plus) and adults. Non-swimmers are also welcome as life jackets are a a must and each participant is supported in the water by a member of the Newfound Team.

Places are limited to 30 participants. There is a £20 registration fee to secure your place (£5 for members of The Brightwell) with an ask to raise a minimum of £150.

Jamie Lowe, from Bristol TV, took part in 2019 and made a short film of his experience. Have a watch to find out more about the Take The Plunge experience.
