Kingfishers swimmers bag charity cash haul

Around 40 members of Kingfishers Swimming Club raised a superb total of £936.04 with a day of bag-packing at Morrisons supermarket.

This included swimmers, parents and coaches connected with Kingfishers, which is a family-friendly club based at Scarborough’s indoor pool.

The club covers all needs at all levels of swimming from learn to swim, through to competing at a high level.

Kingfishers vice-captain Paige Cusworth, 14, said: “This was raised by customers’ generosity, who all took a real interest in the club and what their contributions would go towards. Their willingness to part with a pound or so will really go long way for the club, as we have to pay over £44,000 for pool hire alone! That’s not even counting the cost of teaching equipment and all other costs. From everyone at Kingfishers Swimming Club, We would like to say a big Thank You.”
