River_posterOn May 30th, Kingston University SAC and Kingston University Student Union Volunteers are embarking on a Thames River Clean project in Kingston and we need YOUR HELP!

What can you do to help?

We need volunteers for all sorts of activities including:

  • Divers (must be PADI Rescue Diver, BSAC Sport Diver / equivalent with insurance and medical)
  • Surface support for pulling the rubbish out
  • Surface support collecting donations for the RNLI from passers by
  • …… and much much more.

If you could give up a few hours during the day please contact us at the shop and let us know when you can help and what you can do!







Last year at the event over 4 tonnes of debris was removed from the Thames and the haul included:

  • 105 Shopping Trolleys
  • 35 skateboards
  • 388 bottles
  • 244 glasses
  • 1 stove
  • and 3 coconuts!

The day was an amazing success, with a great spirit of camaraderie. It was fantastic to see everyone working together to make such a difference to the environment.

The event was the brainchild of Aquanaut employee and former Kingston University Student Chris Elliott who wanted to find a way for scuba divers could contribute to and give back to their community.

The project was supported by Thames 21, the RNLI who came along and lent a hand, and various other Kingston University sport participants. The project also supported PADI’s Project Aware current campaign ‘Dive against Debris’.
