GOLD - Colneis Community Pool

The start-point for SwimSure Swim School Ltd, the Colneis Community Pool opened in April 2009 after a phenomenal fundraising effort.

A dedicated group of teachers, governors and parents from Colneis Junior School raised more than £100,000 through fundraising activities and the Big Lottery Fund to replace their outdoor pool with a brand new indoor facility that can be used all year round.

The pool is now used by local schools for swimming lessons and public sessions in the school holidays.

SILVER - Women and Girls Swimming Programme, Tower Hamlets

Research showed that very few women and girls took any activity in the borough and after a community consultation it was decided a swimming programme might be able to change this.

The Women and Girls Swimming Programme was launched in April 2009 with 12 women/girls only sessions across four pools.

By March 2010 attendance figures stood at 26,626 and thanks to the programme more women and girls are taking part in physical activity.

BRONZE - Sunderland Gateway Swim Team

The Sunderland Gateway Swim Team was formed by parents and volunteers to provide a swimming group for young people with a learning disability and/or a physical or sensory disability, their siblings and families.

Since February 2010 the group have increased its swimming time from one hour to two hours per week and some of the siblings of the swimmers are now taking official and coaching qualifications.

Although the emphasis is on fun, many of the young people are swimming in key disability swimming competitions.
