Copeland ASC (Amateur Swimming Club) donated gifts to EAU (Emergency Assessment Unit) and D ward (general medicine ward) at West Cumberland hospital this Christmas. Some of our swimmers visited the EAU ward on Christmas Eve to hand over the gifts on behalf of the club. The gifts were to be given to patients who find themselves in hospital over the festive period.
As a charity we like to give back to the local community. Each year we pick a local good cause – last year we raised over £1000 for the Henderson Suite at WCH by doing the New Years Dip in Whitehaven Harbour. Many of our members are venturing into the chilly waters again this New Years Eve for local Dementia  and Alzheimer’s charities.
