In June Rhiannon Phillips (LHS) took part in a sponsored dive with sharks, in order to raise money for Acorns Children’s Hospice.
The scuba dive took place at the Blue Planet Aquarium in Chester, where she came face-to-face with a variety of sharks and sting rays, including a 10ft-long Sand Tiger Shark!
Rhiannon 'just wanted to say a massive thank-you to all those who sponsored me for my dive with sharks on 21st June for Acorns Children’s Hospice. I raised £528 for the charity, the majority of which has come from colleagues at Aston. Special thanks go to Jayne Dalziel for her amazing contribution and for giving me the idea. Many thanks for all of your support!'
