Making a splash – housebuilder champions local talent by sponsoring swimming club

8 Jan 2024

Bewley Homes has announced its sponsorship of the Chalfont Otters Swimming Club, reinforcing its commitment to supporting the local community wherever it builds.

The premium housebuilder, who is building award-winning new homes at Wilton Park in Beaconsfield, handed over the donation which will help pay for training tops and expenses for a number of the club’s swimmers who have qualified for the National Swimming Championships. Hundreds of swimmers from across the country will be taking part in over 35 different events.

As well as supporting the swimmers in the Nationals, the donation will also help the enjoyment, development and wellbeing of hundreds of local children at the club. 

Head Coach of the Chalfont Otters Swimming Club, Alex Bowsher, said: “Bewley Homes’ commitment to our club is a tremendous boost for our young swimmers. This partnership will significantly aid our efforts in providing quality coaching, resources, and opportunities for our swimmers to thrive.”

Alex added: “It’s an incredible achievement for a club our size to be sending a team of five swimmers to the National Championships. As a community sports club, we don’t make any profit, so sponsorship from Bewley Homes makes a huge difference to supporting our team and staff at this four-day event in Sheffield.

Swim England’s National Winter Championships is the biggest English swimming meet of the winter months, with Britain’s top swimmers taking part – both under 17s and adults, including Team GB members.

Alex added: “Going to a national competition is an absolute highlight for our swimmers and we will be wearing our new training tops with pride thanks to the generosity of Bewley Homes.”

Elaine Stratford, Sales and Marketing Director at Bewley Homes, said: “Our partnership with the Chalfont Otters Swimming Club is a testament to our belief in empowering local talent and supporting the local community. We are thrilled to support a club that not only promotes athleticism but also fosters camaraderie and discipline among its members. We wish them luck in the nationals.”

The sponsorship further reinforces Bewley Homes’ strong ties to the community, aligning with the company’s ethos of supporting initiatives that enrich and uplift local neighbourhoods.
