on behalf of Meridian Salmon Group
Thanks to a £300 donation from the salmon farming firm, the Orkney swim team was able to buy brand new t-shirts for the squad taking part in the Junior Inter County competition.
The annual Junior Inter County competition is part of an established sporting battle between Shetland and Orkney dating back to 1947 featuring five different sporting categories including swimming, athletics, hockey, netball and football.
Willie Young, Business Support Director at Meridian Salmon, said: “As a local employer we are dedicated to supporting the close-knit communities in which we are located.
“The Orkney Amateur Swimming Club’s sheer determination to be the best they can be is second to none and just highlights the excellent work that is carried out by Junior Inter County team coach Bobby Oag and the whole team of staff at the club.
Meridian Salmon Group has long standing connections to the club, as Environmental and Development Manager Chris Webb’s son Fionn is also on the swimming team.
Helen Rothnie at Orkney Amateur Swimming Club, said “Kitting out the swimmers in event T-shirts for competitions like this helps give them a real sense of team identity, and we cannot thank Meridian Salmon Group enough for their kind donation.”
Meridian Salmon Group is one of the top five salmon farming companies in Scotland, employing 350 people particularly in small communities in Shetland, Orkney and the West Coast.
The firm operates at 61 sea sites and 19 freshwater sites across Scotland and Cumbria and is currently developing its new facility in the former Lexmark building in Rosyth, which will be the biggest processing plant in the UK.
