As a charity, Cirencester Open Air Swimming Pool has to constantly raise funds to maintain our facilities for the benefit of the whole community. As well as the operating expenses, we need funds to invest in the pool infrastructure, buildings and equipment.
We currently have a number of capital projects which we would like to undertake. To help fund these, we run various fund-raising activities and events. Please support these events and if you can't make any of them, please consider making a donation to our fund-raising efforts.

About the campaign
We are fundraising around £5,000 for a mobile hoist (similar to the picture above) which will allow people with limited mobility to enter and exit the pool safely and in a dignified manner.
The swimmer is lowered into the water and can either swim away or be met by their carer in the water if further assistance is required.
We want our pool to be fully inclusive and this is another step to achieving this aim.
Please join our sponsored swims to help us purchase this brilliant piece of equipment.
