I was thrilled to be able to capture the Gladstone Telstra store’s presentation of the Transformed by Telstra grant money to Gladstone South Swimming Club. This community grant was hard fought by a few local sporting organisations. Three clubs were represented in the Gladstone store, with customers able to cast a vote per day for the favourite club. With each of the clubs actively sending their members in each day to go cast their vote along with the general public who were in the store. But at the end of the day it was the Gladstone South Swimming Club that came out on top.

In attendance to present the cheque to the club was Megan and Irene from the Gladstone Telstra Store. Ryan was more than happy to accept this cheque and quickly shared the photographic opportunities with a few of the younger club members who were in attendance!

Ryan from the club showed me their BBQ facilities that are used during their practise sessions and meets. The money from this grant will go to erecting some shelter over the existing facilities to provide shade and protection from the elements. They are also hoping to use some of the funds to help freshen up the equipment, with some new benchtops.

I couldn’t help by thinking back to the many, many, many hours I spent as a young fella at swimming clubs just like this one. I loved swim training. So much so I was a member of two different clubs so I could attend both of their training sessions. Maybe I should look at joining up with this club? I sure know I could do with the exercise!
