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]When we took over, the pool structures were in a terrible state and with the help of a grant we lined them - this insulated us from the crumbling structure and held the heat in. However, after nearly 10 years the liners have reached end of life. And other parts of the pool are in desperate need of repair or improvement - we need to get rid of the redundant scum drains and we need new handrails and ladders.[/p][p]The toddler pools have been increasingly problematic and closed on many occasions in the last few years. So in time for 2018 season we repaired, re-furbished and re-lined the toddler pools - we hope you agree they look fantastic! This was expensive and funded from our own reserves. [/p][p]For next season we need to repair, re-furbish and re-line the main pool and for this we will need your help again please. We are awaiting detailed quotes but we expect the project will cost as much as £150,000!!![/p][p]Major grants are available BUT we will again need to demonstrate that we have the community's support, YOUR support. So we would like to PLEASE challenge you to raise 10% of the total - £15,000. Last year you exceeded our expectations and a mix of donations - small and large, fundraising events that we organised but events that YOU organised as well, and sponsored challenges that YOU did, raised nearly 30,000!!![/p][p]So we know you can help us do this and by next season not only will we have the fantastic new toilet block that you helped us raise over £110,000 for in 2017, but we will also have 3 awesome, refurbished and re-lined new pools - and we will be set fair for ANOTHER 10 YEARS OF WATERTASTIC LIDO FUN !!! [/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? Or set yourself a sponsored challenge? Even one in the pool?[/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]

I spent my childhood swimming in this pool and love that I have been able to take my boys this year. Worth travelling from Norwich for - keep up the good work!
