“We are extremely pleased for the support that we have received,” said Dougan on Wednesday, while revealing that the money will be used in many different ways to not only help develop the swimmers, but the coaches as well.

Black Sand is based at the Shrewsbury pool in Ratho Mill and has 36 members – from persons learning to swim to advanced swimmers.

Marketing manager at Digicel Juno DeRoche said that knowing how to swim is an important factor that can possibly save your life, hence the reason Digicel has decided to support the club.

“Apart from that, swimming provides good exercise and is also a great recreational activity, so we are glad to help and we hope that the money goes a long way in helping develop our local swimmers and coaches, so we can continue competing in the region and beyond,” said DeRoche.

Persons interested in joining Black Sand can contact Dougan at 532-9462 or email [email protected]

Sessions are held on weekdays from 4.30 p.m. to 7.30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9 a.m.
