Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Raising funds to help send our swimmers and head coach whom work so hard that they have qualified for the England National and British Championship Swimming Gala being held at Sheffield - with our swimmers competing in varoius events including disabilty events from 24th July through to 4th August.
As we are a non proft making club we are looking for any amount of support and donations from any businesses or individuals to help towards the funding the costs of travel and accommodation for the head coach to attend with the Newquay swimmers to attend. Without funding the club may mot be able to afford to send the head coach to accompany these young swimmers which for all of them is the first time they have qualified for a National gala of this high standard
Any amount donated would be grateful no matter how small.
We are one of the smallest competive swimming clubs in South West and rely on the support and help of our volunteer coaches/swim teachers and committee members whom give up over 15 hours a weeks for the members of the club.
PLEASE HELP us support these swimmers
History of Newquay Cormorants Amateur Swimming Club - Founded 1968 - now celebrating our 70th year
Cormorants had their beginnings at St Columb as a mere additional attraction for Carnival week. In 1968 the Carnival Committee at St Columb sought to introduce some water sports into Carnival week and to use the pool just built at Trewan Hall.One swimmer among their members was John Dawes and as a result of his interest and efforts the Club came into being.None of this would have happened had it not been for the support and encouragement of Mr Denis Hill ( who was president in 1975) and Mrs Hill in allowing Trewan Hall to become the base of club activities.Interest spread rapidly and the demand for all year round swimming resulted in the Club becoming semi nomadic - seeking somewhere to “ do its thing”.They moved around from Trewan Hall to the Apollo at Perranporth ( now Perran Sands) , the Bay hotel pool at Newquay, Bodmin pool and the then new pool at Polkyth - all were used in turn with the main base at Trewan Hall.The Club rapidly made its mark on the competitive side of swimming. In 1972 and 73 the Club won the Centenary Trophy awarded on the basis of the number of points gained in the competition in relation to the number of members in the Club.Also in 1973 the club won the Collins Trophy for the first time winners of the County Inter Club Competition.The opening of the sports centre in 1972 brought the Club its first feeling of stability, while the sport itself could not practice here, it could get its feet on the ground.In 1975 the Newquay Pool was opened and a permanent home for training and recreation and that same year the Cormorants were the County Champions. With its own pool the Club found 100% improvement in the progress.
Since then the club has gone from strength to strength. Despite being one of the smaller clubs in Cornwall our swimmers have enjoyed fantastic success including champions and medalists at Olympic, World, National, Regional and County levels. We have swimmers competing and succeeding at all disciplines including Para, Masters, open water, and GB surf life saving and have swimmers currently on the British Swimming World programme.
Now based at Newquay Waterworld and the Newquay View Resort pools we strive to provide a community service to local swimmers and those visiting the area on holiday whilst fostering a disciplined competitive environment to help each swimmer reach their full potential.
Hopefully we will continue to flourish for many more years and enjoy further milestones and success
