Our club fundraiser, Leanne Milburn has set up a Crowdfunding page to help raise funds during the Covid pandemic. The club hopes to return to training on, or shortly after the 12 April when leisure centres are allowed to return. Once confirmed we will issue a further communication.
When we do return to swimming, we will again be operating under restricted numbers with individuals swimming on a rota basis. However, our pool fees have remained the same over the past year and in fact will increase this coming April! The consequence of not operating normally, coupled with the loss of hosting our own galas has resulted in a dramatic reduction in club funds. Lock down has also restricted our normal course of fund raising which many of you contribute to with the bonus ball, various seasonal raffles and fundraising nights all put on hold.
Unfortunately, this trend continue until full restrictions are lifted and we can return to normal. Whilst the club does not intend to increase fees at this time, we are considering alternative methods of raising funds to contribute to the running of the club. The below Crowdfund page is one initiative. Can I please ask that you share this page with friends and family, or your employer if they operate any local community donation scheme? Any donation will be gratefully received.
