Supporters and Donations

Gail Thompson and Friends

Gail Thompson and friends presented a cheque for £750.60 to the chamber, raised by doing a sponsored dip in the sea on New Year's day. The friends began "dipping" in 2009 in memory of their friend Julie Gibson, who lost her fight with cancer in 2008. The friends have since raised money for the IOM Hospice and the MSPCA, and kindly donated the proceeds from 2011's "dip" to the Hyperbaric Chamber. 

Sincere thanks to Gail and her friends Gaynor Leece, Karen Ainley, Gail Thompson, Stephanie Gray, Jeanette Entwisle, Gary Hemela, Lindsay Grant and Hannah Thompson.

Diane Swain

Diane Swain presented a cheque for £500 to David & Clare, which was raised in lieu of gifts for her recent 40th birthday. Diane has benefitted enormously from hyperbaric oxygen therapy, following complications following surgery and treatment for breast cancer.
