• Derwentside Charity Meet

    My sincere apologies for the delay but we’ve had to wait until DCC invoiced us for the pool.

    It was finally received yesterday and so we made £6808 which meant £3404 had been paid each to SANDS in memory of Lucy Olivia Powell and £3404 to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. I will forward any thank you letters to all completing clubs but I do know Lucy’s parents are away on holiday at the moment and I believe Jenny Agutter is as well.

    As Lucy’s grandfather, and she was our first grandchild, I offer my heartfelt thanks to the committee, parents, swimmers and coaches for their support and hard word..

    Next year’s charity meet is being setup for The Cystic Fibrosis Trust and Newcastle Hospitals NHS Charity (Great North Children’s Hospital PICU/Ward 9) and we hope you will be able to support us once more.

    The grand total raised for the various charities over the ten years is £82919!
