VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

OUR CLUB NEEDS YOU

As a growing and thriving Club we are actively seeking enthusiastic volunteers of all ages to assist our disabled members

Roles include assisting in the swimming pool and changing rooms, helping with “meet and greet” on a Saturday morning, helping at Galas and helping at social events etc.  Training will be provided and the Club will arrange a DBS.

You will be entitled to some free swims, travel expenses and the opportunity to attend some social events for free.

Don’t forget volunteering can seriously improve your CV.

For more information email admin@wimbornewagtails.org.uk or speak to a Trustee at a Saturday morning swim session.

A big THANK YOU to all those who helped at the Festival.  We made some very useful contacts

New Gala Polo Shirts and Sweatshirts

At last the Gala team have a new club uniform- these were kindly sponsored by the Wimborne Rotary Club and used for the first time at the Keynsham Gala. Thanks to Liz for choosing such an amazing colour and working so hard to get the shirts looking so good.

LATEST CLUB NEWS


Our recent achievements for the Club are new Gala polo and sweatshirts, new banners and flyers, a modern website, continued socials, successful Galas and a stand at the Wimborne History Festival.


We have recently updated our policies and suggest that you all read them (they can be found on our website under “About Us” and “Club Documents”).  This is so you can understand the Club’s rules and legal requirements, particularly as we are a group of vulnerable individuals

SANTA FUN RUN – Sunday 11th December


Please support your Club by taking part in this fun sponsored event.  It takes place at Badbury Rings (the 2 mile point-to-point course) from 10.00.  You can walk or run the course and everyone wears a Father Christmas costume (which you keep).  This is run by The Rotary Club and Wimborne Wagtails will pay your entry fee and then our Club keeps all the sponsorship money.


THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT FUND RAISING OPPORTUNITY FOR THE CLUB.


Last year we raised over £600 with only 4 Wagtails.


Please contact Alex for an entry form

HELPERS NEEDED


We are currently looking for new helpers to help run the Club.  Various roles are available:- swimming pool helpers, helpers in the changing room (ladies), various secretarial tasks, fundraising, promoting Facebook, writing for the website etc.  Training will be given, any expenses paid and a DBS may be required (we will arrange this for you).


Please contact any of the Trustees if you are able to help or have any skills that you may be able to offer.


SWIM PASSES


We are pleased to be able to continue to fund swim passes for all our members.  Swimmers who swim at least 3 times a month should have the anytime pass and can swim at other sessions (with a contribution of £15).  Other swimmers have the 10 swim pass.  All passes are renewed at reception when they run out. Please remember to show your pass every week at the desk.

Wimborne Wagtails – A Charity at Last!

After two years of hard work The Wimborne Wagtails Swimming Club for the Disabled is now a registered charity in its own right – charity number 1162701.  Details can be found at www.charitycommission.gov.uk.  Search for Wimborne Wagtails.

Our “charitable objects” are listed as “the promotion of good health by the provision of swimming lessons, water therapy, career respite and social activities to people of all ages who have a physical, mental health or learning disabilities (and their careers) in the Wimborne and surrounding East Dorset area, in a safe and friendly environment (which is not normally provided by statutory authorities)”

We will now be able to claim Gift Aid and hopefully receive some corporate sponsorship.
