The Brighton Dive Centre are organising a charity Christmas dive to raise money for the Project Aware foundation. Our divers are going against the conventional route of dressing as Santa's and instead we are having a Mother Nature theme. Come along and join in the fun if you're nearby! Hope to see you there!

Dive DownBelow, Sabah, Malaysia is FINatical about sharks and swimming to end finning this November.
On Sunday, 4 November 2012, Downbelow is hosting a Finathon – a 1km ‘fun swim’ – at our PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre in order to raise awareness of the plight of sharks and funds for Project AWARE who is fighting for legislation to give sharks a fighting chance.
Are you and your friends FINatical about Sharks? Project AWARE & PADI Staff are swimming 25 kilometers to end shark finning for Project AWARE’s first Finathon™! The clock’s ticking for vanishing shark species. You can join the race to protect them. Join our Finathon™ team, seek sponsorship and let the global race to end shark finning begin.
A local fundraiser's focus was to help put a stop to the cruel practice of "finning," which is depleting the world's shark population.
Some larger species of sharks have rows upon rows of razor sharp teeth designed for ripping and tearing flesh, can smell one drop of blood in a million drops of water, and can dislocate and protrude its upper jaw to help it grab and hang onto prey.
On 12th June 2011, PADI Platinum Course Director, Camille Lemmens will swap his scuba diving fins for running shoes as he participates in the Laguna Phuket International Marathon, Thailand to raise funds for our ocean planet.
“I've taken part in many marathons but this year I wanted to do something a little different. So I’m raising funds for Project AWARE, whose goal is to encourage and inspire divers to be part of the solution for ocean protection.” says Lemmens.
