Donate to the Loch

We need some specific items

We asked for items to decorate the bottom of the loch with, and you have stunned us with your generosity. We extend a sincere thank you to everyone that contributed! Because of your kind donations, we can now limit the search to only a few specific items: a motorcycle, a helicopter, or a small plane fuselage. These vehicles can be stripped and sunk in the loch to allow underwater recovery and rescue training. All donations will be sincerely appreciated.
