We are pleased to report that the Saltdean Lido CIC (SLCIC) have announced that their latest funding target of £100,000 has been met with 21 days to spare.
A social media message from the Saltdean Lido CIC last night read:
Oh Heavens! With 21 days to spare, we've (you've) only gone and done it!!
Thanks to a very generous donation from the Regency Society, we've reached our Spacehive target and raised £101,928.
We could say that we've been incredibly moved by the messages, notes and letters that we've received during the crowdfunding campaign, but that would be an understatement. Our community is wonderful!
We will, in the next few days, share some of the heartwarming messages we've received, but just as a taster, the Regency Society's press release says .......
Regency Society Chairman Roger Hinton says, "Restoration of the Saltdean Lido site is one of Brighton and Hove's most important heritage projects. We believe that it will not only save a fine building but also create an important asset for the local community."
So thank you. Thank you to everyone who's been sponsored, run events, donated, worked so hard. It may sound trite, but really, we couldn't do what we do without you.
(If you have events planned, or haven't pledged funds raised, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for donations into the Trust funds.)
