Swedish-based company donates to 'champions of the ocean' |16 September 2022
The WAYOUT Group based in Sweden has donated water bottles, t-shirts, tote bags and hoodies to the Seychelles team taking part in the Fédération internationale de natation World Junior Open Water Swimming Championships which begin today at Beau Vallon, and to non-governmental organisation 'Ocean Cleanup project'.
It was the WAYOUT Group’s local representative Christopher Lespoir who made the presentation during a small ceremony yesterday at the Family House, Bel Eau in the presence of principal secretary for youth and sports Ralph Jean-Louis.
It was co-founders of the 'Ocean Cleanup project' Marcus Quatre and Dominique Thelermont who accepted the donation on its behalf, while Nathan Nagapin, alongside brothers Damien and Thierry Payet, and coach Steven Mangroo received on behalf of the swimming team.
Mr Lespoir noted that WAYOUT Group is involved in sustainable clean water production and is committed to supporting aligned initiatives in Seychelles, related to water.
"Adhering to water, in WAYOUT, we feel that this will be a meaningful gesture because we will be supporting the team who is championing Seychelles in cleaning up the oceans, while at the same time supporting the team championing Seychelles by swimming in that same ocean this weekend,” said Mr Lespoir.
The Ministry of Youth, Sports and Family takes this opportunity to extend its full support towards Team Seychelles and wish them all the best as they compete at the Fina World Junior Open Water Swimming Championships.
Boys, bring the medal home!
