Dear swimmers and parents,

Sorry it has taken me a while to give you all an update on the latest activity! Counting all those 20p’s took longer than I thought. 😜
Many thanks to all swimmers and parents who raided their purses, wallets, and in some cases coerced their tipsy friends on nights out to help the swimmers fill their tubes.

The Easter Tombola was a huge success and again thanks for all the donations, and well done to Sophie McLaughlin who won the Easter Hamper on the first ticket out the bucket.

Totals raised:
Smartie Tubes £336.20
Tombola £101

Amazing amount raised and thanks for all your hard work over the last 9 months since I took over as fundraising coordinator, during that time we have raised over £2000. The committee have also agreed to release some funds from the club’s accounts which means we now have reached nearly £6000 towards purchasing new blocks for the club, which are expected to cost in the region of £8500-9000. And with your continued support I’m sure we will have the amount raised in no time at all. I have also contacted various companies including the likes of Tesco and Asda to apply for their blue and green token system they have in their stores, hopefully we will hear soon if we are successful in our applications.

So…. this brings me onto our next activity, with Summer Sprints just around the corner this an opportunity to raise some money during the event like we did at the Winter champs. Instead of a raffle it will be another Tombola, We have been donated a box of prizes, but we are still looking for more donations. Wine, chocolates, bath gift sets, anything goes! If you would like to donate please bring your donation to training over the next few weeks so I can prep all prizes before the 23rd June.

If you have any suggestions or wish to help with fundraising I can be contacted at or come and speak to me at poolside.

Again thanks again for your support.
