Bag Pack Brings Home the Bacon for Paignton
On Saturday, Sainsbury’s in Paignton was the scene for the club’s first bag pack. In just two hours club members raised an amazing £316.51 as they packed bags for shoppers. Emma Ashford commented on the ‘awesome swimmers who participated and supported the event’. Shoppers were so impressed by the positive attitude, politeness and good humour of our swimmers that many were giving £5 or even £10 to the club’s funds. After the event swimmers were treated to cool refreshments courtesy of McDonalds.
A really big thank-you to all those who helped and particularly to Emma for organising. The money will be used to purchase training equipment for the benefit of all swimmers .
Hopefully we can make this an annual event.
