WE ARE TRYING TO RAISE AS MUCH MONEY AS POSSIBLE TO SECURE THE FUTURE FOR A YOUNG BOY WHO TRAGICALLY LOST HIS FATHER. I WILL NOT USE HIS OR HIS FATHERS REAL NAMES BUT ANYONE INVOLVED IN THE DIVING INDUSTRY WILL KNOW WHO I AM SPEAKING ABOUT. I WILL CALL THE DIVER MAC AND HIS SON MAC JUNIOR. MAC WAS A YOUNG PROMISING PROFESSIONAL DIVER WHO UNFORTUNATELY LOST HIS LIFE EARLIER THIS YEAR IN HIS MID TWENTIES. THIS WAS NOT AS A RESULT OF ANY TYPE OF ACCIDENT SO THERE IS NO PAY OUT FORTHCOMING OR COMPENSATION ETC MAC ALSO DID NOT HAVE ANY LIFE INSURANCE IN PLACE AT THE TIME! MAC JUNIOR IS NOT EVEN SCHOOL AGE YET AND WAS UNDOUBTEDLY THE APPLE OF HIS DADS EYE. HE IS LEFT WITH HIS MUM TO LOOK AFTER HIM AND HIS GRANDPARENTS TOO SO WILL BE VERY MUCH LOVED. OUR AIM IS TO RAISE WHAT WE CAN TO TRY AND HELP WITH THIS VERY TRAGIC CIRCUMSTANCES HAVING BEEN INVOLVED IN THE DIVING INDUSTRY MYSELF FOR ALMOST 37years NOW I KNOW THERE ARE NO BIGGER HEARTED PEOPLE AND MAC WOULD HAVE BEEN THE FIRST TO HELP ANYBODY IF THIS WAS THE OTHER WAY ROUND. ANY CONTRIBUTION NO MATTER HOW SMALL COUNTS AND I KNOW TIMES ARE HARD FOR US ALL BUT ANYTHING WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED AND FAITHFULLY APPLIED. THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO READ THIS AND I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU ALL IN ADVANCE FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART❤️ HOPEFULLY MAC JUNIOR HIS MUM AND GRANDPARENTS WILL BE ABLE TO SEE WHAT A WONDERFUL HARD WORKING AND COMPASSIONATE BUNCH OF PEOPLE WE IN THE DIVING INDUSTRY REALLY ARE.
