Members of the 'flourishing' Sidmouth Surf Life Saving Club can get changed in comfort thanks to support from a growing town business.
VW Camper Hire provided the cash to purchase a high-quality gazebo for the club to use on its Saturday morning training sessions and at lifesaving competitions around the South West.
The youngsters have outgrown their base at The Arches, so the cover gives them space to change into their kit and store their gear.
Club chairman Dave Manley said: “It’s fantastic to see local businesses supporting the development and skills of young people from in and around the Sidmouth. It is only with such sponsors that the club will succeed in contributing to the development of the area’s young people and educating the general public on water safety.”
Andy Cole, the owner and director of VW Camper Hire, said: “I have watched this club flourish and grow over the years and seen first hand how children and young people have developed in confidence both in and out of the water. As a local business connected to tourism, we see water safety as an important element to visitors enjoying the Jurassic Coast.”
