Being in a Swimming Club is not just about training and competing. This Christmas, Bebington Swimming Club Captains - Emily Dobbing 16yrs and Aaron Fox 17yrs wanted the swimmers throughout the Club to think about those less fortunate than themselves. They decided to ask club members to donate items such as toiletries, hats, gloves, scarfs and chocolate to give to the homeless. Emily and Aaron were overwhelm with the generosity of the swimmers.
Today they attended the YMCA in Birkenhead to meet with staff, Jacki and Lynda, and handover the items. Lynda said ‘we are delighted to receive so much and very much thank the Swimming Club for thinking of us at this festive and cold time’.
Further clothing items, toiletries and food have also been donated and will be given to the Charles Thompson Mission in Birkenhead.
