NWSS Make Donation To Pool Fund

Horsham based Brighton & Hove Albion supporters club North West Sussex Seagulls have made a £200 donation to a Cowfold school swimming pool fund. Members of the supporters club attended St Peters CE Primary School on Wednesday 17th July to present a cheque to Chair of Governors Eileen Precious and school head Giles Kolter. Eileen Precious explained that the swimming pool is a village community pool and was built in memory of village lads who sadly drowned in the sea some years ago, the idea being that all village children should learn to swim. It is used for lessons and clubs for the school children and is open to the public for some of the summer holidays. Although a charge is made for use of the pool this does not cover the cost of running it and the school relies on fundraising and donations to make up the shortfall. The school runs the pool but does not contribute financially from the school budget to its upkeep so any donation is gratefully received.

Mike Wilson on behalf of NWSS said that they were delighted to be able to make a donation to the Cowfold community swimming pool fund and praised the school’s contribution in encouraging all children in the village to learn how to swim. Raising awareness to fund this important local facility is crucial in being able to keep it a part of the local community and the school. NWSS supporters club is a non-profit making organisation and any surplus funds left over at the end of a football season are donated to local charities and organisations, with a particular emphasis on youth activities. On match days NWSS transports over 100 Albion fans in two coaches to the Amex Stadium from Roffey, Horsham, Southwater, Cowfold & Henfield.
