Sad News

We are deeply saddened to report the recent passing, after a short illness, of our dear friend Matt Colliard, who was involved with Dive Ability from its formation in 2012.

Whether Matt was serving as a committee member, enjoying dives in the Red Sea, selling tickets at a show, or just having a beer with us, his enthusiasm, humour, constant smile and refusal to allow his chair to stop him enjoying life was an inspiration and motivation to all who knew him.

He will be greatly missed by us all. Our thoughts and prays also go out to his family at this time. (5th April 2021)
