Thetford Dolphins took part in the Tesco Bags of Help scheme during November and December last year, winning £4,000 from the public vote.

Some of that money was used by the club for a training session at the London Aquatic Centre, described as a “fantastic experience for the swimmers”.

However the rest of the money, along with a separate £2,000 grant from Thetford Town Council, went towards the automatic officiating equipment at the sports centre, where recordings take place during galas.

A spokesman for Thetford Dolphins said: “We want to thank Sarah Douthwaite, community champion, from Tesco’s for awarding us with a cheque accompanied by her daughter Kerry Douthwaite who is a past Dolphin swimmer.

“Thank you to everyone who supported us throughout the two months.”
