Fundraising

Our fundraising team are working hard on a number of initiatives.

  • We’ve got collection tins in a number of local businesses. If you feel that you could take a collection box to work why   not get in touch & we can arrange it for you.
  • We will be organising a number of fundraising events over the year.- Live @ the Lido 2011 will take place on Saturday 21st May.

Keep visiting this page to check on updates on all of these initiatives and more.

Whenever the Hilsea Lido is mentioned people always say how many happy memories they have of the place. We feel the next generation need the same opportunities, the Portsmouth area is full of wonderful people, many of whom have already shown their support for HLPP. This has been achieved in a variety of ways, including:
Arranging a Family Fun Day; Holding regular raffles; Signing up as a fan on Facebook; Becoming a member of HLPP; Attending monthly meetings, etc.

Local organisations are also very supportive. We’ve already got the Community Payback teams working for us, they’re clearing piles of rubbish, sweeping up piles of leaves, scrubbing & cleaning the changing rooms and painting them. Howard & Matapan Road Residents Association were kind enough to give us our first major donation both financially & by allowing us use of their community centre for some of our first few meetings. We’ve had local artists exhibiting their work at the Lido over the Heritage weekend, others have donated artefacts to raise funds. Hilsea Hardware are amongst a group of local businesses who have been providing us with various items of equipment and professional advice.

Thanks to each and every one of you!
