Cornwall LivingIssue #134

Bidding is now open

Dive Project Cornwall is giving Cornwall Living readers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bid on a luxury superyacht charter in Palma de Mallorca worth £15,000.

Picture it – weighing anchor in the sheltered, opalescent waters of Palma de Mallorca, basking in the Mediterranean sun and sipping on a glass of your chosen tipple with up to 10 of your nearest and dearest. For the winner of this incredible auction, this dream could well become reality, and with bidding starting at just £5,000, it’s really a chance not to be missed for anybody in search of the ultimate group getaway.

Perfect for birthday surprises, anniversary celebrations, team building, or a group trip to remember, if your bid is successful, you and yours will enjoy a magnificent trip in luxurious paradise. The two-night, three- day trip is provided by White Star Charters, aboard one of two luxury vessels – the Lady Tatiana of London, or the Lady Alhena of London. Each can accommodate up to 11 guests across five permanent cabins, with an experienced crew of four catering to your every need.

Proceeds from the auction will go towards supporting Dive Project Cornwall CIC. For those who haven’t yet heard of it, this Cornish not-for-profit provides under- privileged school children from inner cities around the UK with the chance to learn to scuba dive in Cornwall. In doing so, it is raising awareness around the country and further afield about the importance of our oceans, creating the next generation of Ocean Influencers to enact the positive change that our marine environment so badly needs. It’s an incredible cause, and the work it’s doing in partnership with key organisations like PADI and Marine Conservation Society comes at a time when our oceans have never needed it more. We are all, by now, aware of the pollution issues facing the marine environment, and there has never been a more crucial moment to take action. Dive Project Cornwall is leading the charge, but it needs our support. Whether it’s bidding for your chance to win a luxury superyacht charter in Palma de Mallorca, or by pledging a sponsorship to help fund the 300 under-privileged children who will be travelling to Cornish shores this year to learn to Scuba Dive, all contributions are welcome.

Bidding closes on Monday 15th May. To place your bid, click here, or head to the Dive Project website to find out more about the other ways you can help.
