Trunx meets Cookie the Culture Cat at Leamington gala

13 December 2011

Big Splash mascot Trunx took time out of his busy schedule to visit Newbold Comyn Leisure Centre, Leamington Spa and meet Warwick District Council's Cookie the Culture Cat.

With help from Felicity Bunker, Chairman of Warwick District Council, he presented medals to the winners at the 46th National finals for the National Association of Swimming Clubs for the Handicapped.

Swimmers from all over the country came to compete in the Gala. The system is simple and has been designed to give every disabled swimmer the opportunity to swim competitively with an equal chance to win a medal or cup.

Portfolio Holder for Cultural Services, Warwick District Council Sue Gallagher said:

"We’re very excited to be involved in the Big Splash initiative and have the National mascot Trunx visit Newbold Comyn Leisure Centre

"Swimming galas are a wonderful way of showing how your swimming skills are put into practice in a competitive field."
