    Hi guys,
    My RB is not getting much use at the moment, so inspired by something I saw on Facebook I got in touch with my local hospital.
    Lo and behold, they are indeed running low on lime and responded very positively to an offer of a donation of a few kg (I explained it was non-indicating grade, but that didn’t seem to matter to them.).
    If any of you lot similarly have some relatively fresh lime going spare, I would encourage you to contact your local ITU hospital and see if it would help them out.

    (And I hope we’re not in the same mess as Mexico, where some of the hospitals are contacting dive shops asking for donations of goggles as PPE for the staff!)

    I've not got round to buying any lo.e yet, so cant help with that.

    I wonder if it's those full face snorkel masks they were after in Mexico. If so I've already seen a few calls for people to donate them to hospitals. Theres a 3d printed adapter to allow them to take a medical filter.

    It was PPE for the medics they were after :(

    And I dropped my lime down this morning: cue one very happy doctor!

    Good call. I've emailed my health board to see if I can do the same with mine.
