30/06/2014Learn To Swim Gala 2014
The Learn to Swim Gala on Saturday was a great success - all the kids looked like they were having a fabulous time and we saw some great racing!! We managed to raise the fantastic amount of £724.50, half of which will go to Banchory Beavers, and half of which we will be donating to Banchory Sports Village, the new sports centre opening in 2017. A big thank you to Banchory Community Council for donating £100 towards the cost of hiring the pool. This was a very welcome contribution. We hope that events like the Gala, run by volunteers in the community, will inspire our young people to have fun while being active and therefore encourage them to keep up a healthy lifestyle.
