Mike's raises more than £10k

Mike's Dive Store in London has been raising money for UK marine-conservation activities through fund-raising charity Sea-Changers since 2015 – and its contributions have just passed the £10,000 mark.

The long-established diving retailer donates 1% of all its online sales to Sea-Changers, and invites customers to make their own donations too.

Sea-Changers distributes the funds raised to a range of projects covering marine clean-ups, conservation education and awareness-raising, species and habitat protection and research, often at grassroots community level.

“We're delighted to play our part in making sure there are healthy oceans and coastlines for future generations of divers to enjoy and learn from,” said Mike’s Managing Director Steve Brown. “We’re proud to have reached this fund-raising milestone.”

“It’s great working with Mike’s Dive Store and to receive their fantastic support,” said Rachel Lopata, co-founder of Sea-Changers.

“We hope that divers and their families will choose to do their Christmas shopping at Mike’s Dive Store and raise money for more projects at the same time.”

Do you need to be fit to dive?

Adventurer, technical diver, stuntman, climber and all-round Action Man Andy Torbet knows a thing or two about keeping fit. Here he gives some basic advice to help us all get back into shape for when we can hit the water again.

Ship shape

The skipper promised me a wreck, so it must be down here somewhere. If the vis was better, I might even be able to see it.

Things fall apart

I can’t quite understand it. How did that happen? Every item of my scuba kit was fine when I put it away.

Free and squeezy

Freediving – it’s basically snorkelling with good PR. It involves holding your breath, often to the point of semi-suffocation. What’s so free about that?
