Weʼve raised £385 to repair Jubilee Pool
- Jubilee Pool, Penzance, United Kingdom
- Funded on Saturday, 13th September 2014
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The Jubilee Pool suffered severe storm damage inflicted in 2014 and the future of the pool is in jeopardy. A major grant has been won from the Costal Communities Fund but another £110,000 is needed before work can begin. My swim is part of a larger campaign by The Friends of Jubilee pool including community events, selling of merchandise, collection tins, corporate sponsorship, an optional £1 added to local restaurant bills and appeals to Cornish societies. Since June 2014 £50k has been raised.

Well I did it (completed the challenge and raised the money) but I couldn't have done it without you so thank you so much. It was an amazing day and I can't do it justice with the word count I have here. I did found a blog that describes the experience better than I could ever manage so check out http://www.frankwater.com/blog/2014/9/9/the-scilly-swim It also has some video footage that looks great too. In total I have raised over £500 and the thought of your generosity and faith certainly spurred me on throughout the day. The pool needs as much help as we can manage so go to http://www.jubileepool.co.uk/saveourlido/ if you want to help further. I wish I was better with words and I can't seem to convey just how blown away I was by the generosity of friends, family and strangers-Thank you all

About the fundraiser
Jubilee Pool, Penzance, United Kingdom
I have been swimming in Jubilee pool for years so it saddens me to see it closed and under threat. I am swimming and walking around 6 islands of the Scilly Isles to raise money for the Jubilee Pool. See http://www.scillyswimchallenge.co.uk/about.html for more details.
