raised of £50,000 target by 69 supporters

    Weʼve raised £10,765 to replace our 20 year old timing equipment and results board. This is called AOE (Automatic Officiating Equipment).

    Funded on Saturday, 4th March 2023

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    COPS - City Of Peterborough Swimming club needs to raise just under £50,000 to replace the 20 year old timing system used to record races.

    This timing equipment need to be of a certain quality and specification to allow the club to host swimming galas. The AOE will record times to count towards qualifying for county/regional and national competitions.

    The AOE comprises of components that include a score board, touch pads and starter to name a few. For full details please see below.

    The Club had planned to raise funding through various local galas and fundraising activities but this was thwarted due to the Big C happening.

    If we are lucky to achieve more than our goal of £50,000 we will utilise the money to further upgrade the club's equipment.

    Your money will enable the club to continue to develop swimmers for years to come, giving them key life skills in determination, resilience and attention to detail that will produce not only top class competing swimmers but rounded adults.

    If we are unable to raise the full amount the money will be put aside until the full amount is raised for the purchase of the AOE.

    If you would like to purchase any of these components outright we would love to publicise this so please leave your contact details or get in touch.
