Many hands make light work as our swimmers raise over £1000 packing bags.

On Sunday 3rd February 2013 at 11am, 34 swimmers from the National Squad descended on Sainsburys at Colton to undertake an unusual challenge.

Instead of taking to the water they took to the aisles bag packing in order to raise money for the club. For 2 hours they packed their socks off and even looked to be enjoying themselves! It was then the turn of the National Age Group Squad who took to the task with great enthusiasm.

Even when it became quiet their enthusiasm never faltered. Finally it was the turn of the Regional Squads who although fewer in number raised an astonishing amount of money, the final 2 tills left open were in a “pack off” to see who could raise the most money.

All the squads looked amazing in their City of Leeds kit and really stood out, without a shadow of a doubt this helped to raise an unbelievable total of £1035.88.

A huge thank you to each and every swimmer who gave up their time on Sunday. It just goes to show that City of Leeds Swimming Club really are A Team Above All and Above All a Team.
