The Deep
For Conservation, not profit.

The Deep is an education and conservation charity and as such, conservation is at the heart of the business.
The Deep team are passionate about protecting the oceans and the species that live within, so all projects focus on the aquatic environment. From protecting penguins in Antarctica and monitoring Manta Ray populations in the Red Sea to safeguarding the future of endangered animals, the team of dedicated scientists are truly making a difference.
As a not-for-profit charity, 100% of the money raised through the aquarium goes directly towards pioneering research and conservation work. It is thanks to the support of loyal customers, that The Deep is able to carry out work both in-house, in the UK and right across the world.

The Daisy Appeal

The Daisy Appeal at Castle Hill Hospital is raising funds to equip a unique, state-of-the-art facility working to develop new radiotracers for use in cancer, cardiovascular and dementia imaging in a new Cyclotron and Radiopharmacy Unit. The charity has completed a huge amount at the hospital, building an £8m research centre, which opened in 2008, and creating the £4.5m Jack Brignall PET-CT (Positron Emission Tomography-Computed Tomography) Scanning Centre in July 2014 which uses a state-of-the-art flow-edge Siemens scanner and accommodates more than 2500 scans per year. Currently all the scans are undertaken on patients with cancer. The second and final piece in the jigsaw will be the construction of the £7.2m Cyclotron and Radiopharmacy Unit sited next to the existing scanning centre. The cyclotron will give the capacity to create the radiotracers as they are needed, making the facility able to detect the early signs of cancer, cardiovascular disease and dementia. Until now such imaging has only been possible in a selective research environment. The aim is to make the technology available to all patients, thereby improving their clinical care. The charity is working with scientific colleagues at the University of Hull and the facility has the opportunity to become the leading UK site for this new technology. In excess of £18m has been raised since the charity started in 2002 and it is on course to raise a further £1.6m to complete this final phase in the development.

Yorkshire Air Ambulance

It may surprise you to know that the Yorkshire Air Ambulance Charity relies on the generosity of individuals and organisations to help save lives across Yorkshire.

In fact, as a Charity they only receive help through secondment of paramedics from the NHS, through Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust.

To keep both of Yorkshire`s air ambulances in the air they need to raise £12,000 per day. This is equivalent to £4.4 million per year. As a rapid response air emergency service the Charity serves a population of approximately 5 million people across 4 million acres.

Their two Air Ambulances operate from The Nostell Priory Estate near Wakefield and RAF Topcliffe near Thirsk, and together both Air Ambulances cover the whole of the region.
