As a club we are always looking to improve and provide a better experience of swimming. This has though its own limitations based on the number of swimmers at the sessions. The revenue therefore generated from swimming and club fees alone is limited.
To enable to club to offer improvements and develop i.e. new sessions , further coaches , training or purchase equipment we have to look to raise monies by other means.
