Boclair Dental Care is new sponsor for GTC aquathlons

The club is delighted to announce that Boclair Dental Care in Bearsden will be sponsoring the GTC youth aquathlons from August – and going forward.

The sponsorship will help with some of the costs for the aquathlons, which provide the junior section with a key source of fundraising.

The funds raised by club events go towards buying and maintaining equipment, subsidising club kit, stocks of kit for low cost hire and delivering sessions for the junior members.

New funds also facilitate the start up of new sessions, such as introducing a swim development session on Monday nights specifically for children who have some swim experience but need skill development before progressing to the body of the club.

Dr Drew Gibson, Principal Dental Surgeon at Boclair Dental Care, said: “We have chosen to sponsor this event to show our support for local sports clubs. We currently sponsor teams ranging from football to dancing and we thought it was important to extend this to include other sports.

“It is our opinion that sport is of particular importance to the health and social care of all our community – and especially to youngsters.”Bob Newton, GTC’s treasurer, said: “We are delighted to welcome Boclair Dental Surgery as a partner and look forward to working with them to our mutual benefit.

“The junior section is a real source of inspiration with more than 85 children between the ages of eight and 16 regularly enjoying the experience of swim, bike and run activity in an open and friendly club culture.”

Entires have opened for the next youth aquathlon, which takes place in August.
