Scuba Diving Charity Deptherapy Shortlisted for Prestigious Military Award

-

Scuba Diving rehabilitation charity Deptherapy & Deptherapy Education has announced that the charity has been shortlisted as a Finalist for the 2018 Soldiering On Awards.

Deptherapy & Deptherapy Education is shortlisted in the Healthcare & Rehabilitation category. Sponsored by Redwood Technologies Group, this Award will be given ‘in recognition of a person or team who have made a major contribution in the treatment of ill health or injury, or provided exceptional skill and commitment to healthcare treatment, recovery and rehabilitation of serving and former members of the Armed Forces Community.’

The Soldiering On Awards recognise the outstanding achievements of those who have served their country, and the diverse people and groups who work together in support of the Armed Forces Community. Under the prestigious patronage of the Rt Hon Earl Howe PC, Minister of State in the House of Lords, the Awards aim to encourage support for this remarkable community by celebrating the achievements of the people, teams and businesses within it.

Richard Cullen, Founder and Chairman of Deptherapy & Deptherapy Education said:
“Being a finalist in the Soldiering on Awards is a huge boost for the charity. I hope this recognition of our work will attract sponsorship from the private sector to ensure our long-term plans are sustainable. We are competing against three other exceptional finalists in our category and we wish everyone involved the greatest success. It is the ‘troops’ we work with that make Deptherapy special and we are privileged to help their rehabilitation.”

An Independent Panel of Judges, led by Soldiering On Awards President, General, the Lord Dannatt GCB CBE MC DL, and Debra Allcock-Tyler CEO, the Directory of Social Change and Soldiering On Awards Vice-President, will decide on the final recipients of the Awards following a Finalists Reception at the House of Lords in February.

The 2018 Soldiering On Award Winners will be announced at a Black Tie Dinner and Awards Ceremony on 20 April, 2018.
