Jeremy Clarkson’s Auction Success

admin Lido News, Local News

Jeremy Clarkson and a packed Town Hall of Lido lovers raised over £13,000 for the pool, ably supported by Kaleb Cooper whose promise of a personal tractor lesson (in Jeremy’s Lamborghini) was the highest ticket of the night!

Huge thanks to all the local businesses and individuals who supported The Lido so generously by donating lots, and to everyone in the audience for making it such an excellent evening’s entertainment and our biggest fundraiser of the year.

The pool receives no public funding other than its Town Council grant, so it’s only through events like this one that The Lido can continue to expand its offering and to survive the current energy crisis.

Our thanks are also due to our inimitable auctioneer Jeremy Clarkson and to his co-host, former trustee Ken Norman whom we successfully lured away from his new life on the UK waterways.
