Romford’s winning youngsters pick up their prizes

Youngsters at Romford Town Swimming Club are celebrating after being presented with a cheque and being treated to a free slap up meal after winning a competition.

Seven students from the swimming club were presented with the cheque for �200 by Spur Steak and Grill Restaurant in Lakeside on Saturday March 5.

Fundraiser at Romford Town Swimming Club, Elizabeth Whiston said: “At the moment everything is so expensive so the money from Spurs is a real boost.”

As part of the prize, the youngsters were also given free Spur swimming towels and they were also able to tuck into a free Spur combo meal.

The swimming club, which has been running for 100 years, entered the competition for sponsorship last year which saw them writing a letter about the club.

Earlier this month, the club found out that they had won the prize.

Elizabeth said: “We are really looking forward to it because they are talking about a long term sponsorship deal which would be really helpful.”
