Menzieshill Whitehall Swimming and Waterpolo Club used the donation to purchase team breathable t-shirts and coaches polo shirts.  Earlier this month, 27 swimmers and 5 coaches from the Club attended the Tenerife T3 Training Camp for 7 days.  The team are pictured in Tenerife wearing the recently purchased t-shirts.

Nigel Mackay, Swimming Converner from Menzieshill Whitehall Swimming and Waterpolo Club, said:  “It was fantastic that SPAR was able to supply the club members with their training tops. We can only thank them for their generosity in supporting our training camp in Tenerife.”

SPAR Local Area Manager Paul Howie, said: “SPAR has been charging for carrier bags for a number of years now and, in addition to reducing the number of bags going to landfill SPAR has also been able to raise funds to support good causes in the local communities, we are delighted to have been able to donate to Menzieshill Whitehall Swimming and Waterpolo Club.”
