A swimming club has been bag-packing to raise funds.

Sainsbury's in Leek was the venue for the fund-raising initiative by members of the Leek Swimming Club, which raised a total of £839.

Yvonne Bailey, fund-raiser for the swimming club, said: "The funds raised on the day go towards keeping down the cost of the monthly fees for the swimmers, and we would like to extend our absolute thanks to both staff and customers alike on the day.

"Without your generosity and goodwill, it would be a lot more difficult for our swimmers to be able to achieve their goals." She added: "We take in swimmers of all abilities, and it is a joy for both the swimmers and the coaches to watch them fly forward and advance while enjoying themselves in a friendly, productive environment, surrounded by like-minded people."
