The members of the Merrick Mavericks swim club are very grateful to Newton Stewart Co-op for their generosity after the supermarket donated a selection box to each of the 35 Merrick Maverick club members.

These boxes were presented to the swimmers at their annual Christmas gala held at Merrick Leisure Centre on Sunday.

Club members and siblings took part in fun relay swims in four teams named snowmen, elves, reindeer and Santas, followed by a buffet provided by the parents.

A spokesperson for the club said: “The Co-op are regularly involved in helping local community groups and their support throughout the year is invaluable.”
