We're still collecting donations

On the 12th June 2020 we'd raised £10,270 with 16 supporters in 55 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

 New stretch target

If we hit our £10,000 target we will be able to cover our fixed costs and bills for the 5 months we have been forced to close. This money is vital to help Wessex Swim School re-start in September time. 

Wessex Swim School - want to teach the world to swim! For 16 years we have taught children from the age of 3 how to swim in small classes of 3.

Covid crisis has hit our industry hard and the business has had to close pools. We have managed to keep all our employees on but we need your help to support us and enable us to re-open. 

We need our swimmers and Solent LEP support to help us survive through the downtime to cover our rent of our office, office bills and phone lines whilst we have been forced to close. 

This crisis has now continued to affect us and we have now lost over 1/3 of our annual income due to our pool facilities still being closed. This has put considerable pressure on us to cover our fixed costs. 

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
