  Lloyd Watkin of the Yorkshire Divers Group who led the challenge said: ‘We’ve been raising money for the RNLI for a number of years.

   The lifesaving work the volunteer crews do every day of the year is just amazing and as scuba divers we will never know when we might need to call upon them ourselves.’   

   Gareth Lock was one of the158 divers who donned Father Christmas costumes and braved sub-zero temperatures to take part in the event. He said: ‘It was an amazing sight to see nearly 160 divers dressed in Santa costumes getting ready to jump into freezing water to raise money for the RNLI.’    

  The event was specifically raising money for training RNLI crews, and has been running for three years.
   In 2007 eight Santas, accompanied by a Viking, a snowman and a fairy dived for the RNLI. (see video)
  Last year, 84 Santas took part in the dive.
   The world record attemt for the Most Scuba Diving Santas had already raised £658 from a raffle and the group looked set to meet their target of £5,000 for the RNLI once all the donations were counted. "The current total is nearly £3,500 and that includes a donation from Phoenix Divers from Essex who raised £2,000.

    If the divers reach their £5,000 target, Vobster Quay will add a further £1,000.

   The date for next year's Scuba Santa event has already been set for 19 December 2010.
