We are a charity-run swimming pool that operates for the benefit of the local community. We are used by individuals, families, schools, clubs, and other organisations for recreation, swimming lessons, health, and fitness. Our biggest income comes from ticket sales. However in order to make our pool accessible to as many people as possible, we also need to fundraise to ensure our survival.
With the cost of energy rising leading to an unprecedented increase in our running costs, donations are needed more than ever. To safeguard the future of our pool, we will be needing to radically change our heating system to ensure we don’t have to close our doors for a final time. We are envisaging the cost will be around the £75,000 to £100,000 mark. Whilst there are grants we will be looking at accessing to help with these costs, most will require our own fundraising efforts. Any donation regardless of size is most welcome.
We process online donations through a partner website called Wonderful. Unlike other services they don’t charge any processing fees, so all of your donation goes straight to us. Where eligible please also add Gift Aid to your donation, which means we will receive an extra 25% at no cost to you.
Please consider donating £25/£50/£75/£100 or more if you can. A donation of any size is really welcome.
Please make a donation today: https://wonderful.org/charities/300773
If you are having difficulty with the donation website, please note that we can also accept donations (both cash and card payments) at the pool.
Thank you so much for helping to protect our pool’s future for everyone to enjoy and benefit from!

We're delighted to say that we have been accepted as one of the good causes for the new Teignbridge Lottery. This could be a brilliant way for the pool to have a regular income stream to help towards our increased energy costs. Of course, the more people who sign up and choose us as their charity, the more money we will raise.
