Tottenham Aquaknots present cheque for over £3500 to Swanage Boathouse Appeal

The Tottenham Aquaknots was a diving club founded around 1966 and flourished for many years, having more than 80 active members at its peak.

However in recent times membership has dwindled and it no longer became viable to continue running the club. Members took the difficult decision to wind up the club in late 2013, but they had to make a decision as to what to do with their remaining funds.

The club took the decision to donate the diving club funds to the Swanage Boathouse Appeal as a thank you to the RNLI. The members of Tottenham Aquaknots always knew the RNLI were there should they require assistance at sea and felt that donating their remainder funds to the Swanage Boathouse Appeal was a fitting tribute in particular as some members have required the services of the Swanage lifeboats in the past.
The cheque for over £3500 was handed over to Coxswain Martin Steeden and will go towards building the new boathouse, work on which commenced in November 2014.
