My club has been unable to run its own swimming galas during COVID. The funds we raise from our galas are a significant part of our overall income and help us pay for our pool hire and coaching.
We are raising funds to replace this lost income and ourtarget is to raise £16,000, the same amount that we raised from our galas in 2019. Sport England will contribute 30% of our target, as long as we raise the rest ourselves.
The additional funds will enable the club pay for a significant increase our water time so we can train at a level which enables us to compete successfully. This is really important to me, and to other swimmers at the club, so we can achieve our swimming goals
