UK freedivers swim channel (er… kind of) to raise money for St Abbs lifeboat appeal


On Saturday the 12th March 2016 a group of freedivers from Apneists UK will be doing a freedive distance event in Glasgow to raise funds for the St Abbs lifeboat appeal. They will be covering a distance in the pool equal to or greater than the English Channel (20.6 miles) in a relay underwater team over a 7 hour period.

Mr Boyd Tunnock of Tunnock’s Tea Cakes fame will be at the event to set the freedivers off. He has already donated an incredible £260,000 to the appeal. As a result, there will be a new boat called “The Thomas Tunnock” in his honour.

You can support the event and donate to this worthy cause here:
