A great crowd of divers gathered 18 bags of rubbish as well as assorted barrels boxes etc. We met the RNLI rep at the boathouse and they kindly donated some goodie bags for the fund raising underwater treasure hunt.
Philip and Gavin laid the numbered treasure tags and then everyone else had a great time looking for them. It was really good craic swimming around looking for the tags and a little run and poor viz made no difference.
All hungry divers and supporters treated to a delicious barbecue and it was well deserved.
Well done Philip and crew for a brilliant day out, good for the area, the environment, Portaferry lifeboat and of course, Lisburn sub aqua club.
We had the LSAC banner flying throughout! Amount raised for Portaferry RNLI was £160.53. Well done everyone!
