JACK Petchey has awarded Thurrock Swimming Club a £1000 grant for continuing to deliver youth provision during the pandemic and in recognition of the Clubs continual commitment to their swimmers. It is also in celebration of The Jack Petchey Foundations 21st birthday.
The Jack Petchey Foundation continues to invest in the Clubs swimmers and Thurrock SC will use this grant to continue to pay towards open water swimming.
The Club has had approximately 50 swimmers attending open water training every week. It has been an opportunity for everyone to socialise, motivate and focus on their swimming again. Thurrock SC has also invited swimmers and coaches from other clubs to attend within Essex.
Thurrock Swimming Club would like to thank Jack Petchey, their volunteers, coaches and swimmers for the continual support through this difficult time.
