Support Your Lido
Since The Lido started to be run as a charity* in 2004, increased income and better managed costs have reduced the annual trading deficit from over £25K to around £15K. This is despite rising energy costs and fair wage increases. Nonetheless, £15K is still a considerable gap to fill each year without the core funding typically available to most public outdoor swimming pools, so we appreciate any and all contributions.
*Registered charity no: 1113869
If you would like to donate, please contact us, or you can give online via Total Giving, as well as when you shop online if you sign up to EasyFundraising. Any donation works harder if you are eligible for Gift Aid and could complete this form.
The Lido is managed by a committee of voluntary trustees, supported by other valued volunteers, who help out with the pre-season clean-ups and/or at our fundraising events. If you would like to be a trustee or could volunteer to help in any way, we’d love to hear from you. If you are short of time but would otherwise like to feel involved in The Lido, you can become a Member, so you have voting rights at our AGMs etc. Again, please do get in touch.
