ASDA Bag Pack – Fundraiser Day – Sat 30th April »

The Social and Fundraising Team have arranged our second bag packing event at Asda, Great Yarmouth to not only promote public awareness of Great Yarmouth Swimming Club but also to raise money to contribute towards much needed timing equipment for our invaluable swimmers.

If your child would like to help at this event, please complete the table below with your timeslot preference no later than 25th April If you are not available to accompany your child, please arrange with another parent who will be present to supervise.


Last year we only managed to raise £392 over a 4 hour period due to a small number of helpers.  PLEASE, PLEASE help us to collect much more this year! Think how much we could raise in 6 hours!!

Please note Asda’s rules are:

  • Wear GYSC clothing, i.e. T-shirt

  • Only children aged 8 or over can bag pack

  • A minimum of 2 adults to supervise each group/timeslot

  • No mobile phones

Any problems, please speak to either Lisa Larner, Claire Wilson or Lisa Medler.

Many thanks – and happy bag packing!
