Hailsham Swimming Club Back to Pool Fund

Hailsham Swimming Club is a friendly, family orientated club serving Hailsham and its surrounding area. Formed in 1989,  and volunteer led, we have helped hundreds of children grow as athletes and individuals and we need your help to continue for many years.

Please help us to raise vital funds to enable our Swimming Club to get back into the pool as safely as possible, as soon as possible, once the government and swimming governing bodies deem it safe to do so.

Our swimmers have been unable to swim since March due to Covid-19 and are like fish out of water!  We made the decision to stop collecting fees given that we could not offer full training and wanted to support our families going through financial difficulties.  Not all clubs made this decision and whilst we hold some reserves to see us through short-lived tough times they are not designed for a crisis of this duration. 

We need to raise funds to help cover the predicted increase in costs to get our swimmers back into the water as soon as it is safe to do so.  We anticipate these funds to be used for purchasing PPE, other safety equipment and bridge the shortfall on fees to cover pool costs due to reduced numbers of swimmers in the pool at any one time.

We are applying for extra funding from Sport England 'Active Together' and if successful, Sport England will boost our funds with match funding of up to 50% towards our initial crowdfunding target! This will mean that any donations are worth more to us when donated through this Crowdfunder - so please do help us if you can!

We hope that the local community, ex-swimmers and sportspeople will all feel able to donate our cause and help us to keep our club swimming!
