We are so proud of Pamela here at Swimtime Scotland and are delighted to share her story and experiences with you. A massive thank you to all Swimtime swimmers for the massive effort. I collected in total 56kg of swimsuit. I took 3 large cases, which my clothes only took up half of one suitcase. I had a few days in Cape Town, then flew up to Port Elizabeth at Nelson Mandela Bay. This is the base, of the charity United Through Sport and Beach lifeguards. On arrival they explained how nearly 90% of the pools had been closed due to a drought they have had for nearly 2 years now. Only the indoor pools and a couple of others remain open. While I found this sad, the knock-on effect is that to swim in indoor pools the dress code is much stricter than outdoor pools where underwear is acceptable. They must wear appropriate swimwear, or they are not allowed to attend the lessons or training sessions or the beach lifeguards. They all come from a deprived background, so swimwear is not their priority. United Through Sport were delighted with the suitcase of swimwear that I dropped with them, I met with Nosipho Xapile who is the programme manager with UTS. They plan to use the swimwear in there Learn to Swim Programme. With the restrictions on facilities, the swimwear will allow them to get more children from deprived areas into the programme and pool. The beach lifeguards are an amazing group, when open they train in a lovely 50m pool in a township, where they involve local children showing them that working on the beach as junior lifeguards at the weekends is a way of earning money and therefore learning to swim can really change their lives. They were delighted with the swimsuits they got, this will allow them to take more kids to the indoor pools as they now have swimwear. As I mentioned the beach lifeguards are stationed at Hobie beach which is one of the many beautiful beaches in the area. Port Elizabeth hosts Ironman South Africa. Which is a full weekend of events building to Ironman championship on the Sunday. I was asked to join the water safety team form the weekend. Iron kids is on the Saturday they swim 100m in a pool, then run a mile, and are treated like Ironmen and women, an amazing experience for the children finishing the event running up the red carpet the same as the Ironman race. Sunday was a different experience, the sea was really rough, with really bad rip currents, the swim was shortened for this reason. When we went into the sea at 530am there was over 150 people in water safety team, from helicopter, boats, jet skis, canoes, surf rescue boards and lifeguards with torpedo buoys. 2000 competitors it’s an amazing sight, and lucky enough to see for another side but also hard work, the waves were relentless battering from all angles, I couldn’t even imagine what the swim would have been like. Unfortunately two competitors died, I was involved in rescue and CPR of one of the men, in all my years in the leisure industry haven’t had to use any of these skills before, but my training just kicked in. That’s when I realised just how important what UTS and Keith Ahshene (Beach Lifeguard Head Coach) does with the lifeguards and training the kids up to have lifesaving skills. In South Africa the drowning level is high and 75% of those drownings in the sea are off the coast of Port Elizabeth. With the help of everyone at Swimtime who kindly donated swimming costumes we hope that more and more young people from the area learn this life skill and help to reduce the level of drownings. From Pamela and all of us at Swimtime Scotland, Thank you, by donating your old costumes it really will go some way to helping kids learn to swim. ... See MoreSee Less
