The Broomhill Pool Trust is delighted to have been selected as one of ten charities (from Suffolk and Norfolk) to share in a £16,000 pot.
The £16,000 is being provided by the charitable arm of Newsquest Media Group’s parent company, the Gannett Foundation.
Tokens for “Readers’ Choice Cash for Charity” can be found in the Ipswich Star, East Anglian Daily Times, Eastern Daily Press and Norwich Evening News every day for four weeks. The funds will be distributed based on the tokens received back for each charity.
The Broomhill Pool Trust is a voluntary run charity; our trustees and committee members give their time and expertise completely freely. We have exceptionally low running costs (hiring Broomhill Library for our monthly meetings, Public Liability Insurance and website hosting, etc). So, nearly every penny or pound that we have collected over the last 20 years is used directly to campaign and lobby to save Broomhill Pool; and to provide supporting data, vital analysis and evidence supporting the restoration of Broomhill Pool, Ipswich’s Grade II listed lido. We also put on regular community events (Heritage Open Days, etc) and have partnered with Community Payback to help clean up the pool during the last 20 years.
