Personal Watercraft Partnership Donate £200 To British Divers Marine Life Rescue
The British Divers Marine Life Rescue have received a £200 donation from the Personal Watercraft Partnership. In December the PWP ran a Charity donation giveaway competition on social media, encouraging their followers to nominate their favourite charity to receive a £200 donation from the PWP.
Many charities were put forward by entrants but in the end, it was David Clark, who nominated BDLMR, whose name that was drawn to win.
Andrew Norton, PWP Director, says “We were delighted to see that the £200 would be donated to British Divers, a great charity that should be close to the hearts of everyone that enjoys our waters.”
Since its formation in 1988 British Divers Marine Life Rescue have played a huge roll in caring for the UK’s marine life and has been involved in the rescue of marine wildlife after every major marine disaster in the UK. Seal rescue has always been a major component of the BDMLR’s work, with medics rescuing animals in all seasons around the UK. They have also become progressively more involved in the response to stranded and entangled cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoise) Every year, BDMLR trains over 1000 volunteer Marine Mammal Medics and has 20 whale rescue pontoons located at strategic points throughout the UK, waiting to help stranded whales and dolphins.
The Personal Watercraft Partnership very much enjoyed running this ‘Spirit of Giving’ competition and may well make this a Christmas tradition!
