Sedgefield Water Polo club’s U15 National Age Group champions have put their names to Durham County Council’s chairman’s charity appeal.
Members of team presented Durham County Council chairman Cllr John Robinson with a signed club t-shirt for his charity auction.
Cllr Robinson is raising funds for the Great North Air Ambulance and Butterwick Hospice and visited the club to receive the signed shirt and to see the boys train. He also met the club’s coaches, officials and volunteers.
Cllr Robinson said: “I was gobsmacked at how committed everyone was – the boys, their coaches and all the parents and volunteers who together have made the club such a success.
“It was great talking to the lads and to receive the shirt.”
Cllr Robinson made a small donation to club funds and pledged to replace the club’s ‘roll of honour’ banner if its under 16s team wins the ASA National Championships for their age group later this year.
