Thurrock Community Leisure was pleased to benefit from a donation of £250 from the Rotary Club of Grays Thurrock to help with the provision of swimming classes for people recovering from differing medical problems

The classes help improve the fitness and wellbeing of people who suffer from, of have suffered, illness such as strokes and heart problems. One of the swimmers, Pete, told how much the classes had done for him both physically and mentally after an Aneurysm left him severely disabled and unable to walk. The cheque was presented by Elaine Stevens, Community Service Chairperson to Wendy Barnard, instructor. Wendy said “the classes are such a lifeline, and costs have to be covered by fundraising”.
