Grant helps club keep up with time
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.
