DAME Design award names charities for 2018

The DAME Design Awards will be presented at the start of the 2018 Metstrade show on November 13. During the ceremony, checks will be handed over to representatives from the designated charities for this year, Wetwheels and Blue Marine Foundation.

Since both charities pursue marine-related objectives, the Metstrade Exhibition Committee decided to distribute equal shares of the DAME 2018 proceeds.

Wetwheels works with disabled people by providing access to the water using purpose-built powerboats. The awards funds will be used to provide sea-going adventures to handicapped people around the United Kingdom.

The Blue Marine Foundation is dedicated to restoring the health of the world’s oceans by creating marine-protected areas, developing models of sustainable fishing, repairing key marine habitats and protecting vulnerable and threatened species. The DAME funds will be used for a project in the Aeolian Islands aimed at improving the marine environment and ensuring a harmonious marine industry for local anglers and leisure boaters.
