Roy Trevor Removals for a third year are pleased to announce sponsorship of the Warriors of Warrington Swimming Club’s annual Percy Mason Memorial Gala.
Percy Mason was one of the founder members of the Warriors of Warrington. He was also chairman for a number of years until becoming president a post he held for many years unopposed until he passed away.
Percy was a very active member of many committees including Liverpool and district, Cheshire County where he was also Chairman and President of both organisations. Later he was awarded the ‘Honour of Life’ membership to both groups for his continued development and support of the sport at all levels. An honour only given to a select few in the sport!
Percy was the first ever Warrington’s spots personality Unsung Hero in 2003. Above all Percy’s main love was for his Warriors of Warrington and his ‘Speedo League’ North West, again of which he was both president and a life member. He was so proud to see his children achieve success in the pool wearing the black and yellow cap or black and orange in the early days of the club.
His eldest son Russell is still swimming and wining today. It didn’t matter to Percy what age of the swimmer or level they achieved, they all were all important to him. His gentle caring manner shone through, and he always went out of his way to praise them on their success. A true mark of a great man in our sport. Percy was renowned, revered and recognised where ever he went for his professionalism when refereeing, his sportsmanship when supporting his team, and being a complete gentleman. Warriors of Warrington owe him so much for his vision and his dedication to our club. His success is now our success, and long may Percy’s and the other founder members vision continue.
The event is hosted by Warriors of Warrington at Orford Jubilee Neighbourhood Hub, it’s an opportunity for visiting clubs to compete in the competition. All swimmers aged 9 and over on the 29th November can compete if they are members of an ASA affiliated club.
Roy Trevor started sponsoring the Warriors of Warrington back in July 2013 and have provided support for many events with lanyard and medal sponsorship.
Everyone here at Roy Trevor are extremely proud of supporting this local sporting group and would like to thank not only all participants for a wonderful event but to all the organisers as well.
