Accountancy firm Bishop Fleming has teamed up with a Cornish diving center to enable 400 teenagers to learn scuba diving.

The company which has an office in Truro has worked with Dive Project Cornwall, sponsoring its education program, helping to educate and raise awareness of the importance of the planet’s marine environment.

Dive Project Cornwall is both an education program and an experience opportunity.

The global initiative will educate hundreds of thousands of young people and millions of people through promotional materials through media partners and strong collaborations with ocean charities.

The Experience Opportunity will give 400 teens a once-in-a-lifetime experience, where they will embark on a life-changing journey to Cornwall for six days during which they will learn to scuba dive, undertake beach activities and learn from marine experts.

Ally Allington, partner in Bishop Fleming’s office in Truro, said: “We are constantly working to minimize our carbon footprint.

“Having achieved ‘Plastic Free Champion’ status by Surfers Against Sewage in 2019, we are committed to making a difference and making an impact by doing our best for the environment.

“As a leading Cornwall-based company committed to the region, we are delighted to be a part of the Cornwall Dive Project which is a great initiative taking place in the region to help educate and provide a fantastic opportunity for the next generation. “

Andy Forster, founder of the project, said: “It is with such fantastic support that we are able to deliver our vital message of the importance of ocean conservation to hundreds and thousands of people.

“We truly believe that by educating and engaging our youth, we will be doing our part to help protect the future of our oceans. “
