Category: Family Fun Date: Tuesday, 25 December 2012 Luxury Dorset hotel guests will be able to take part in a fun-filled charity swimming event with a twist at Charmouth Beach this Christmas Day. The annual Christmas Day Fancy Dress Swim sees participants donning outlandish - and often impractical - costumes as they take to the cold waters on the morning of December 25th. All proceeds from the event go towards the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, which is dedicated to saving lives at sea and is funded by charitable donations of this kind. The swim gets underway at 11:00 GMT, giving visitors plenty of time to open their Christmas presents in the morning before heading along. Book a Get More From Your Stay package at The Summer Lodge Hotel to enjoy luxurious accommodation and a choice of several indulgent extras this Christmas. Options include an afternoon tea for two, a light two-course lunch, a massage session or a pub lunch at the Acorn Inn.
