Diss Otters would like to raise £6,000 to allow our swimmers to continue to train through the pandemic.

by Diss Otters Swimming Club in Diss, England, United Kingdom

Diss Otters Swimming Club is a Community Amateur Sports Club and a non-profit making organisation dedicated to the improvement and progress of competitive swimming, in all ages and to all social backgrounds.

We aim to encourage and develop good sportsmanship, individual integrity, team spirit and provide an environment in which swimmers can realise their full potential at all levels.

WHY ARE WE RAISING FUNDS?

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 our swimmers have only been able to undertake intermittent training since the outbreak in March. Due to the guidelines that we are following we have been reduced our squad sizes which has impacted our revenue and the stop/start of training during lockdowns as effected our ability to  retain our membership.  

We are keen to ensure that our 80 plus swimmers continue to benefit from the training and competing opportunities that we offer. We are a parent run club and simply don't have the financial reserves needed to see us through a crisis of this duration, let alone an added prolonged period out of the water.

We also understand how important swimming is to so many. Not only does it have an impact on our physical health, but also our mental well-being. 

Diss Otters has been helping children learn to swim and compete for over 35 years and we need your help so we can keep doing this for many more years!

HOW WILL WE USE THE MONEY RAISED?

We anticipate using the money raised to support the club with additional pool costs while also trying to rebuild our swimmers back to fitness in a safe environment. We believe it is vital that all swimmers are supported and in doing so retain there friendships with squad mates through such challenging times.
