As a charity, we are constantly fundraising to help maintain and develop Wirksworth pool.
What fundraising is doing today
Since becoming a charity in April 2012, we have been supported by some wonderful individuals and organisations. They have donated time and money to help us. Donations have purchased new swimming aids, filter media, a buggy shelter and other items that help us operate on a day-to-day basis.
Our Friends of WSP fundraising team regularly host events from bingo nights to bag packing sessions in local supermarkets. All profits raised from their activities are split equally between the pool’s current needs and the extension fund.
Support for future plans
Our biggest aspiration is to raise enough to build an extension to the pool building. We desperately need to provide an internal reception, viewing area, disabled facilities and improve changing options.
Planning permission has been granted for the extension and we are working tirelessly to submit grants and funding applications to raise the funds for its build.
Please get involved
As a small charity, with an even smaller team, every bit of help fundraising makes a significant difference. Please make enquiries today about ways you can help.
