CHAMPIONSHIP FIRST FOR SWIMMERS WITH DOWN SYNDROME
Powerday has played a crucial role in the success of the first ever British Down Syndrome Swimming Championships which took place from 19-20 November 2022 at the K2, Crawley in West Sussex.
The family-owned company, who sponsored the event and is well known for championing health and wellbeing in its local community, was delighted with the outcome, which saw 135 swimmers aged between 10 and 50 – all of varying abilities – compete in 44 events across the two days.
Tara Crossan, Head of Marketing and Communications at Powerday, commented: “We are so proud to have sponsored the first ever British Championships for swimmers with Down syndrome. Supporting our partners and charities is all part and parcel of what we do at Powerday and events like this really show the important role sport can play in bringing communities together.
“We spent a wonderful two days cheering on the swimmers, hearing their incredible stories of courage and finding out more about how events like this are so beneficial for those with Down syndrome. We can’t wait for the second installment next year.”
