CoPA Sponsorship – Music Centre Donation

City of Preston Aquatics’ scheduled training session on Monday evening, 7th September saw a special visit from Mr Guy Topping, Managing Director of Barton Grange Garden Centre as he demonstrated his support for City of Preston Aquatics by delivering a new music centre.  Mr Topping spent time watching CoPA swimmers train and was fully apprised of goings on by coaches Alex and Fiona.  City of Preston Aquatics would like to extend their grateful thanks to Mr Topping for this most generous donation which is sure to serve the club well for many years to come.

Both ladies finished in style!  Many congratulations from team CoPA!
