Aberdeen-based independent financial advisory firm Central Investment has supported an award-winning local swimming club’s visit to one of the top training facilities in Europe.
Aberdeen ASC participated in a programme of activity at the Tenerife Top Training (T3) location, which offers excellent training facilities. Both the Olympic, as well as the 25 metre swimming pool, are located under the open sky and the diatomaceous earth filtration system allows comfortable training without additional exposure to chlorine.
Vice-President of Aberdeen ASC, and Director at Central Investment, Bill Ellis said, ‘Supporting this fantastic local swim club is a pleasure, the students involved are thrilled to have visited these outstanding training grounds.’
The Club scooped the top prize of ‘Club of the Year’ at the Scottish Swimming Awards in late September 2015. The awards took place at the Edinburgh Assembly Rooms and celebrated all athletes, coaches, volunteers and local councils involved in Scottish Swimming. Central Investment contributed over £500 to the swimming club’s trip, providing the team kit for the trip.
Founded in 1980, Aberdeen ASC is based in Cults at the International School of Aberdeen, is open to all ages and levels and has trained swimmers that have gone on to compete in the Olympics and Commonwealth Games.
