British scuba diving rehabilitation charity Deptherapy is launching its new Direct Debit program at the GO Diving Show this coming weekend.
The charity urgently needs to raise funds to keep its life-changing and life-saving programs in operation. Deptherapy is hoping to encourage the supportive diving community to give a small regular amount through Direct Debit and Gift Aid via the Just Giving fundraising platform.
Visitors to the show can sign up to the program on the Deptherapy stand and anyone pledging over £5/~US$6.70/~€6.03 per month will also receive a free Deptherapy water bottle.
Deptherapy beneficiaries and Board Members will be manning stand 47, situated close to the entrance to the GO Diving Show, which takes place at the NAEC Stoneleigh in Coventry from March 4th to 6th.
One hundred percent of donations to Deptherapy go directly to support their beneficiaries. The charity has no paid staff and minimal overheads. Every penny given to the charity goes directly into providing bespoke scuba diving training and support for injured UK Armed Forces Veterans.
Deptherapy volunteers will be giving two presentations at the GO Diving Show, with Chairman Richard Cullen, beneficiary and mental health champion Tom Oates along with the charity’s Vice President Dr. Richard Castle, who is an Independent Consultant Psychologist specializing in trauma, will be speaking on the Main Stage at the show from 3pm until 3:45pm on Saturday and Sunday.
The title of their presentation is “Scuba Diving & Rehabilitation: Fact or Fiction.” Using the academic and medical studies of Deptherapy’s work, the team will challenge the present clamor within the scuba diving industry that scuba diving, on its own, has a healing effect with respect to mental health.
The team will show that what Deptherapy delivers is far more than adaptive scuba diving, and it’s this added value that delivers the ongoing psychological benefits to beneficiaries in what is now considered to be a world leading and ground-breaking program.
