HSC – Fundraising

Hello All,

To help raise funds for our swimming club, we have organised a ‘bag pack’ at Morrisons.

So….. We need volunteers. Swimmers and adults please who would be able to help out for a period of time on Saturday 18th October. Swimmers must wear their club kit and be prepared to be helpful and be positive ambassadors for the club.

We plan to be there from 10.30 onwards but depending on how much support we get it may be staggered throughout the day.

Siobhan is co-ordinating times so if you can help, please contact her on the address below.

Thank in advance, and regards,


(on behalf of the HSC)
