Jo Swinson MP for East Dunbartonshire was on hand Friday night as RBS presented the Milngavie and Bearsden Amateur Swimming Club a cheque for £6250 as part of its Community Force initiative. Community Force is a platform that empowers local projects and charities to raise awareness of their work and make their plans a reality.
The Milngavie and Bearsden Amateur Swimming Club brings together 140 young people from across the community. The club promotes a healthy, active lifestyle along with values such as hard work, dedication and discipline.
Commenting Jo said:
“The success of Milngavie and Bearsden Amateur Swimming Club is thanks to the energy and hard work of volunteers who spend considerable time providing programmes for so many local young people. This award will allow them to improve their facilities and training programmes so that young people have the chance to participate and achieve their potential.”
