RASC is looking for home baking donation for the weekend. Ideally, things that can be easily served and sold separately (cupcakes, tray-bakes etc). For those of us who are culinarily challenged, maybe you have a relative who’s a baking genius that would be willing to help us out.
We are also still collecting prizes for the tombola.
Baking donations can be handed into Lifestyles on Thursday or Friday night, Tombola prizes can be brought down tonight, Thursday and Friday.
Everyone’s help and support is greatly appreciated!
We are still looking for a number of volunteers for the Rascals meet this coming weekend. Please can all parents add their name to the list on the club notice board.
There are a number of jobs available, from officiating (trained timekeepers and judges), to the many Meet support tasks, including: front desk and programme sales; tombola stand; tea, coffee and cakes table; swimmer marshalling; and poolside runners.
Swim meets (particularly accredited ones like ours) are essential to the development of all swimmers. They also help to generate funds for the hosting club and solely rely on the help and support of parents and families. It is vital that they run smoothly, not only for the results on the day but to encourage visiting clubs to return for future events. A successful, accredited meet will help to boost our club profile and will support our fantastic swimmers as they continue to develop.
Your help will be greatly appreciated and if you’ve never been involved before, there will be someone on hand to show you the ropes! It is also a great way to get involved with the club and gaining a better understanding of the sport.
