July 31st, 2011   

I’m sure we’re speaking for the whole club when we wish Cameron Park (Coach Helen and Graeme’s son) and Emma Christie (Jonathan’s big sister) the very best of luck in next week’s ICG. Both swimmers swam for RASC before moving to EK for some extra training hours.

As you know each year at the Mini League final there is a raffle and the money goes to CHAS, for your information below is a copy of a letter sent by them regarding an open day, if you are interested please contact CHAS direct.

‘The Robin House open days are on 28 and 29 September and you and members of the Clyde Coast Leagues are most welcome to join us and see first hand how your donation has been used to support the children and families at the hospice.
No families will be staying during the open days and we will provide refreshments. The guided tour takes around one hour and ten minutes and must be booked in advance. Tours go round in groups of eight from 9.30am until 7.00pm.
We would be delighted if you could spread the word and pass on this invitation to as many as possible.’
