Bag Packing – Fund Raising


Friday 23rd December – fund raising opportunity:  bag packing at Sainsbury’s, Apsley

You may be aware that we’re raising money to replace our existing lane ropes and starting blocks.

Over the last few years we’ve found that one of the most effective ways of raising money has been to pack bags for shoppers at Sainsbury’s, Apsley.  We help pack shopper’s bags; they give a contribution to Club funds (actually some give a contribution for us not to pack their bags – there’s no accounting for taste!).  This year we’ve been allocated the really choice spot of 9am – 3pm on Friday, 23rd December and we’d like as many people as possible to turn out to help.


We know it’s a busy time of year and we all have last minute preparations to make for the holidays – but that’s precisely why it’s such a good time to help pack bags.


There will be a list on the notice board during the week with 1 hour slots; please, please sign up for as long as possible.

Swimmers should wear a Club t-shirt or hoodie if at all possible (because otherwise how will the good shoppers of Apsley know who’s helping them or what they’re contributing toward!).

Younger swimmers must be accompanied by an adult (because otherwise the good shoppers of Apsley may not like the way their bags are packed and not give us any money!)
