They’ve arrived at last
After much hard work and fundraising efforts we are now the proud owners of 6 new style diving blocks.
We have to thank our sponsors the Teesside Philanthropic foundation who donated £2000 from their Golden Giveaway and Sirius Minerals First funding Programme who gave us a generous grant of £3000. Even with the generosity of these two organisations we were still around £1000 short of the final cost of the blocks so it was down to the efforts of members raising cash by way of raffles, sale of 2nd hand equipment and bag packs to raise the rest of the cash. At the beginning of November we finally took possession of the long awaited blocks and they had their first outing at the annual club championships on 16th November.
We would also like to thank Mel from Wobbly Wot Notz in Liverton who not only made our lovely new covers, but donated them free of charge.
The swimmers present and future are grateful to all the organisations who made this project happen.
