Success stories

Borough of Kirklees Swimming Squad

The swimming squad received a grant of £4,000 from Comic Relief to help with the cost of providing coaching and training for their team. The squad is extremely successful and has won several competitions in the UK, and competed in the Special Olympics national games in Bath, where they won many medals.

The money was presented on behalf of Comic Relief by One Community. The award is part of £4.5m being made available by Comic Relief to projects UK-wide which address issues of economic and social deprivation, through the Local Communities programme. Learn more about our funding programmes.
