Exciting News for Keynsham Amateur Swimming Club

Tanya Oliver

We have not one, not two, but THREE exciting pieces of news to share with you about our Crowdfunder. https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/keynsham-amateur-swimming-clubs-covid-19-appeal

Firstly, as some of you may be aware, we have successfully managed to hit our initial £12,000 target and have secured the grant from Sport England in that total. Over the remaining 12 days of the campaign, we are pushing towards a stretch target of £20,000, and will be releasing a new reward every day, so keep your eyes peeled for daily emails from the crowdfunding team.

Secondly, we have been approached by Dom Taylor, an ex KASC swimmer with the most incredible offer. Dom has very generously pledged to match EVERY single penny we raise. So, for every £10 you donate, you will be raising £20 in total!

We are extremely grateful to Dom who explains what KASC means to him, “My whole family and I grew up swimming at KASC in the 90s and early 2000s, and pools became a second home as I competed up to national standard with my sister. I firmly believe that the discipline and determination learnt in the pool has helped me go on to build my businesses and approach life in a positive way.

Swimming, and the community KASC creates around it, is crucial for physical and mental development, but the costs in terms of time and money are significant. When I saw the fundraiser it became clear to me how much the pandemic had impacted the club and I am delighted to match every pound raised to help ensure we keep as many children in the water as possible in these strange times.”

And finally, thanks again to Dom for a £50 voucher for https://www.royaloakleighterton.co.uk/. Every supporter who has donated to the Crowdfunder will automatically be entered into a draw to win this. The draw will take place after 3rd December.
