This month will be crowdfunded and is dependent on people pledging to purchase a month’s pass splitting the cost of the month of £15,500 between pledges. Entry will be based only upon passes with no day tickets available for the duration of the month. Should the full amount of funding be raised then the month of swimming will not happen.
This is in addition to current season tickets, entry to the month of swimming will be restricted to October only passes issued upon collection of first swim.
Crowdfunding works, by people (lido public) pledging an amount of money for a service by a company (lido), this is held by a 3rd party (glosfund) should the complete funding be achieved then the money is released by the 3rd party (glosfund) and the services are provided by the company (lido) to the people (lido Public). Should minimum amount of funding not be achieved then the money held by the 3rd party (glosfund) is returned to the people (lido public) and the service is not provided.
Price: £32.50 + admin fee – Adult £22 + admin fee – Adult Concession
The £15,500 needed to fund this month of swimming is just to cover costs incurred to open within this timeframe.
