A funding boost from Greater Bank’s #GreaterNewEngland Community Funding Program will assist Tamworth City Swimming Club in providing a fun social atmosphere, as well as training the next generation of competitive swimmers.
Based at Tamworth Olympic Pool, the club took out the public vote and major prize of $3000 for the March round of the funding program.
Tamworth City Swimming Club Vice President, Alban Bunnemeyer, said the club has a proud history and operates to promote water safety, encourages fitness, and delivers health benefits that can last a lifetime.
“The club has been part of the Tamworth community for 80 years and has a strong band of volunteers who work together to make the club great,” Alban said.
“We are a family-oriented club that focuses on the development of our swimmers while promoting healthy exercise, water safety and fun.
“We are committed to provide an environment that develops and encourages a love for swimming regardless of age or ability.
“The Greater Bank funding will provide a real boost to the club, with the money to go towards learn to swim equipment and training resources that will benefit all our swimming groups.”

The #GreaterNewEngland Community Funding Program runners up for March, Australian Air League Tamworth Squadron and Lake Keepit Family Fishing Club, both received $1,000.
Greater New England Regional Sales Manager, Will Boyd, said swimming is an ideal activity for people of all ages.
“Whether you’re a young up and coming swimmer with dreams of representing Australia at the Olympics or you enjoy swimming for recreation or fitness, the benefits are many,” Will said.
“Greater Bank is a strong supporter of community sport and Tamworth City Swimming Club is an ideal recipient of our community funding program.”
