Recruitment Solutions (NW) sponsor Rochdale community swimming club

Recruitment Solutions NW Ltd are delighted to announce that we have recently become a proud sponsor of a local youth swimming club – Aquabears.

Aquabears is a Rochdale based swimming club which was formed in 1979 in response to the need for a high level competitive club in the local area. Many of their swimmers have gone on to achieve international success – including Olympic Silver medalist Keri-Anne Payne.

The club focuses on youth and teen competitive swimming and further enhances our support for Sport within the local area, given as we are already sponsors to Rochdale Cricket Club

Of the sponsorship, Mark Crouch, Chief Coach at Aquabears, said…


The club appreciates the sponsorship given by Recruitment Solutions NW Ltd.

We have to raise money to cover costs of administrating the club and these can be costly for a small voluntary organisation.

In this instance the website, which includes all the communication, ranking systems, swim meet entry systems and communication with our governing body, annually costs around £1500 which has to be raised independently from the fees paid by the members. So this charitable donation helps us greatly and reduces pressure on our budget costs.


We already have a close connection and vested interest in the swimming club – we have our very own Aquabear – Charlotte Shenton, who is the daughter of our MD Karen.

Charlotte is already making a strong competitive impression at the club – at age 8 she has already competed in the North West representing the club in 100, 200 and 400 metre relay races and most recently completed time trials at an internal gala with the club!

Go Charlotte!
