Geoff Edwards and Megan Manners (sitting) are joined by the rest of the Cooroy Dolphins club members celebrating their recent success.

In the immortal words of Dory, ‘just keep swimming’.

Recently, the Cooroy Dolphins had their annual Twilight Swimming Carnival, their largest fundraiser for the year. Incredibly, 24 clubs from the Wide Bay region attended, spanning from Bundaberg to Redcliffe.

Held in picture perfect Spring conditions, the carnival gave 38 Cooroy Dolphin participants a great opportunity to give their best in a competitive environment. Encouragingly, many won medals against some of the bigger clubs on the coast.

Cooroy Dolphins treasurer, Megan Manners said the carnival gave the Dolphins a great chance to showcase the swimmers and the club.

“As a committee, we were overwhelmed by the support from some of our local businesses, sponsors and our parents of the club who gave so much time to make this carnival a success,” Megan said.

One of those was Cooroy Community Bank of Bendigo Bank, and Geoff Edwards was invited by the club to visit with the kids and share in their success.

“We’re delighted to have supported the Dolphins for many years and this is just the latest opportunity to support the club. It’s just another way we continue to support the community that supports our Cooroy branch,” Geoff said.

Back in 2012, the Cooroy Community Bank branch of Bendigo Bank partnered with Sunshine Coast Council to install a heat pump in the pool for all to use during the cooler months. In recent years, the chance to train through winter has meant strong growth in the club’s numbers and great results in regional competitions.

It’s also been great for grass-roots involvement at the club with the pool holding learn-to-swim sessions for all ages and providing swimming, fitness and health opportunities to the wider community.
