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.
