Please help us to raise funds to lessen the financial impact on our swimming club due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since March our members have been unable to train and it may take some time to get back to their levels of fitness before the outbreak.
Due to COVID -19 many children and families have lost not only the facilities where they train, but also a place to meet with friends.
Leicester has been hit by a double blow, in that the pools our swimmers use are in the lockdown area, so while many others will be back training on the 25th July, our swimmers are not!
Whilst we have always managed our finances well , the severity and length of the pandemic has meant that our funds have been placed under considerable strain during this time:
(1) We immediately suspended member training fees as soon as the pools closed
(2) We cancelled our two annual Internal Club Galas this year, which are our two main fundraising events.
(3) While closed many of our unpaid volunteers have been taking courses and updating their skills, to support our members on their return to swimming.
Going forward, our aim as always is to ensure that our club continues to serve our diverse community , giving our swimmers and volunteers every opportunity to be the best they can be . By developing their skills and maximising their potential.
We want to be able operate efficiently again after COVID-19. A donation from you will greatly help towards this
Unfortunately Sport England have declined to match our crowdfunding cash raised by 50%, which means we need your support even more.
A special thank you, from all at LNSC for supporting us in these troubling times.
