We’ve Hit £200,000K

Dear Investors,

We think it’s perfect timing that on #GivingTuesday we’ve reached our minimum target of £200,000! We still can’t quite believe it ourselves and send an appropriately big “Thank You” to Big Society Capital for their match funding grant of £100,000. But we would not have received it if it hadn’t been for your support. We are so grateful and send you not a big “Thank You” but an absolutely huge one!

We’ll soon enter the final 48 hours of our campaign and want to get as close to our stretch target of £300K as we possibly can by the campaign’s closing at midnight on 30 November; we want to make this year’s St Andrew’s Day an even bigger cause of celebration.

And there’s still so much you can do to help us get there!

  • Follow us on Twitter and Facebook  - sharing our posts as we approach the deadline.
  • Let your friends and family know that you’ll soon be an owner of a Glasgow icon.
  • On today, #GivingTuesday, tell people what inspired you to give your support to Govanhill Baths.

We are rapidly approaching the culmination of almost two decades struggle to return Govanhill Baths to full use. When we do, it will be because you along with so many others in the community have helped us to get there.

Thank you!
