What a tremendous achievement in achieving our Crowdfunding target. £23,725 is a truly amazing amount to raise, especially in these times of financial uncertainty. Whether you have donated, pledged, sponsored or been involved with working on the Crowdfunding campaign I thank you. Reaching the target epitomises everything that is special with our club, how we all work and come together when the need arises. It is through your pure determination and willingness to fight for the cause that we can now look forward to the club having a future.
The reach of the club goes further than just its membership and I would like to give special thanks to others that have played their part in helping us to achieve our goal. The many family members of swimmers, the local businesses, local media, former swimmers and Olympians and friends of the club who have given time and contributed in some way to making our target become a reality.
As we move towards coming out of lockdown and hopefully return to some sort of normality, let us look forward to a bright future and build on the success of the Crowdfunding campaign.
I cannot sign-off without giving my thanks to Keith and Zoe. If proof was ever needed as to how much the club means to someone, what better way to show it than by jumping out of an aeroplane! I am sure if anyone would like to sponsor them who hasn’t already done so, they would be delighted to hear from you.
I am immensely proud of what we have achieved, thank you all again for everything you have done to make this happen.
