Team story

[p]Many thanks for visiting our page.[/p] [p]For more information on our project please visit www.beccleslido.com.[/p] [p]The outdoor swimming pool in Beccles was built in 1959 and closed by Waveney District Council in 2008.  The community rallied, formed a charity Beccles Lido Limited, and acquired the pool and created and now manage Beccles Lido.[/p] [p]Since we launched our campaign in spring 2017 we have raised the money to replace our aging and increasingly decrepit toilet block, thanks in no small part to £10,000 that we challenged the community in Beccles to raise.  This they did through personal donations and a series of fund raising events that they organised for us.[/p] [p]But they didn’t stop at £10,000! As the fund hit nearly £20,000 we decided to continue fundraising in order to re-pave and landscape that whole side of the pool.  The paving and concrete areas are in a sorry state following many years of neglect under WDC control, and the grass area by the toddler pool regularly floods.  So we have decided to keep our community fundraising page open, and we hope that the donations and fundraising events will keep going until we re-open next May.  (The proceeds of the 2017 Beccles Beer Festival and Mulled Wine stall at Beccles Christmas Lights Switch On will also go towards this new project.)[/p] [p]Please donate whatever you can, large or small, as we know this will quickly mount up.  Or why not hold a fundraising event?[/p] [p]If you are in a position to make a more significant donation, or would like to offer the services of your company to help with the works, then please contact us directly on 01502 714911 or email us at info@beccleslido.com.[/p] [p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can make a donation which will be quickly processed and passed to the Beccles Lido charity. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on our behalf if you are eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
