Sad News

It is with the saddest of hearts that we have to report the recent passing of Michelle Bass who after a long fight finally succumbed to pancreatic cancer. Michelle had been involved with Dive Ability almost from its start and was known and loved by everyone who knew her for her bubbly disposition, limitless enthusiasm and friendliness to everyone she met. She will be hugely missed and our thoughts and prayers go out, at this very sad time, to her husband and family. (4th Nov 2019)
