Team story

[p]We know at this time that everyone wants to support the NHS and NHS charities and we applaud that and many of us are doing so in every way we can at the moment.[/p][p]But every charity is suffering at the moment and Beccles Lido is no exception - we have no season ticket or swimming income now or in the foreseeable future and no fundraising events either,[/p][p]and as we are near the end of a huge refurbishment project we still have bills to pay, as well as other essential purchases such as a replacement springboard, new hand rails and new lane ropes.[/p][p]We want to be ready to re-open as soon as we are advised by the Government that it is safe to do so, but we expect that will also require us to implement new safety measures and incur more expense.[/p][p]The 2.6 Challenge has been launched by the organisers of the London Marathon – which raises so much money for charity and has also been cancelled – to Help Save the UK’s Charities.[/p][p]We are hoping that our supporters will do a 2.6 challenge and help us raise money for the Lido by asking for donations to this page – it could be anything.[/p][p][gt] Do 26 press ups?[/p][p][gt] Walk up and down your stairs 26 times ?[/p][p][gt] 26 x 26 second planks in 26 minutes ?[/p][p][gt] Run or walk for 2.6 kilometers or 2.6 miles or 26 minutes ?[/p][p][gt] Go for a 26 kilometer or 26 mile bike ride or cycle for 26 minutes or 26 minutes out then back ?[/p][p][gt] Run a 26.2 mile marathon in your garden ![/p][p]or anything with a 2 and a 6 in it ?[/p][p]For more inspiration go here [url=http://www.twopointsixchallenge.co.uk]www.twopointsixchallenge.co.uk[/url][/p][p]Let us know what your challenge is here [url=http://www.facebook.com/BecclesLido]www.facebook.com/BecclesLido[/url] and post some pics after ![/p][p]and please if you can make a donation ON THIS PAGE and tell us what you did or who you supported –[/p][p][gt] £2.60 ? 26x26p = £6.76 ? £26 ?[/p][p]How ever large or small it will really help us and make a difference.[/p][p]To kick it off Lido Director Shaun Crowley is going to run 262 laps of the newly refurbished main pool – [/p][p]that’s about 26 kilometers or a metric marathon![/p][p]What’s your challenge?[/p][p]#SmallCharities #NeverMoreNeeded[/p][p]#TwoPointSixChallenge #WhatsYourChallenge[/p]

The pool looks absolutely wonderful, I am just so sad that we can't use it and being one of the early morning silver swimmers I think it is doubtful whether I shall be able to swim this year and I miss it so much. Thank you for all your work.
