Entrants are welcome to generate additional sponsorship for the charity of their choice.
WaterRelief by Excellent Development provides a solution that can accomplish many life-improving qualities in dryland areas including Africa. A few of the benefits include providing unlimited clean fresh drinking water to villages, growing crops for medicine and food, freeing up time to allow children to go to school, and creating a place where endangered species can graze and drink water. Just £10 (the entry fee to one tournament) is enough to give one-person FREE WATER FOR LIFE!
The Scuba Trust helps those with disabilities and their friends experience the joy and freedom of scuba diving. The aim of the Scuba Trust is to provide a level playing field by arranging training and obtaining funding to subsidise applicants who, due to disability, encounter difficulty in finding suitable instruction and who may face a greater outlay for training and recreational diving after certification.
Both Aqua Lung and TUSA have already kindly donated prizes to the event for the winners of each challenge.
