Get involved with Friends of Wigton Baths Trust

Can you spare a few hours every now and again? Have you got a particular skill to utilise?

Join 'Friends of Wigton Baths' today!

 

We need support with a whole range of things to suit everyone's abilities such as:

 

Decorating

DIY

Repair work (plastering, electrical, etc)

Gardening and weeding

Deep cleaning changing rooms and pool resources

Organising and delivering fundraising and marketing events

Helping to advertise promotions

Obtaining raffle prizes

Selling raffle tickets

Writing reports for the quarterly newsletter or website

Sourcing new/cheaper resources and equipment

(such as new lockers, storage containers for pool equipment, cleaning products, etc)

With a small team of volunteer Trustees and Pool Staff, it is difficult to get the manpower and time to cover lots of little jobs without accruing significant costs to the Baths. As a charity organisation our funding is low and the cost of getting specialist professionals in for every job (on average, callout fees alone cost between £100-£500 before any work has even been done, so that plus any parts and work required) would force us to hike up the pool usage prices which would then impact everyone attending the pool.

 

We want to keep our prices as low as possible for you, particularly at present with the cost of living crisis affecting so many of us; so if you can offer a couple of hours as often as you can to help out on odd jobs, such as those mentioned above or anything you have noticed you would like changed, we can continue to run as a low-cost pool and benefit the community's health and social wellbeing.

We are hoping to amass a team of Friends to work alongside the staff and Trustees of Wigton Baths so that those who currently support the Baths in this manner are not called upon on every occasion and that all future supporters can support as an when it fits into your personal life. All Friends will always be supported in any venture undertaken to support the Baths.

In return for your support and help, we will provide an exclusive "Friends of Wigton Baths" membership card for free which will entitle you to discounted swims as a token of our thanks for your time and support.
