Scuba Santas is aiming to raise at least £2000 from the 2014 event, with the generous support of the diving community. All money raised will be collected by DDRC Healthcare (who used to be the Diving Diseases Research Centre) and split 50/50 between them and the RNLI.
You may not realise, but DDRC Healthcare took over the National Diving Accident Helpline from the Royal Navy at the beginning of 2013, and their doctors provide support and advice to callers in need of assistance across the country. DDRC Healthcare is a registered charity and they will liaise with the nearest hyperbaric chamber to a diver, if they need to be seen by a Diving Doctor or be treated at a hyperbaric recompression chamber facility.
Both of these charities do fantastic work, on call 24/7 to help divers whenever they might need it. That includes all through the Christmas and New Year period too of course.
