Grant helps club keep up with time

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

MEM­BERS of a swim­ming club in Vic­to­ria Park are hop­ing to make a splash thanks to a fund­ing boost.

The newly formed Som­er­set Swim­ming Club has been awarded a $1000 grant by Bankwest, as part of the com­pany’s Easy Grants pro­gram.

Swim­ming club pres­i­dent Ian Davey said the money will be used to buy es­sen­tial com­put­erised time­keep­ing equip­ment to be used in com­pe­ti­tions.

“Be­ing a newly formed swim­ming club we’re in much need of var­i­ous items of equip­ment to en­able our kids to train, de­velop and im­prove their swim­ming,” he said.

“All our mem­bers thank Bankwest for their valu­able sup­port.”

Bankwest head of com­mu­nity en­gage­ment Craig Spencer said the grants were specif­i­cally de­signed to help com­mu­ni­ties and com­mu­nity groups at a grass­roots level.
