Help play a key role in our exciting plans for Jubilee Pool!
Our community share offer to raise funds towards the exciting geothermal project closes on 30th September. With your support we've raised our minimum target of £350k and so we're now aiming for our optimum target of £500k.
We're planning to heat a section of Jubilee Pool to 35°c all year round, and you can help us by investing in our community share offer. We believe this project will secure the long term future of the pool and bring huge benefits to Penzance. The share offer will also raise funds for exciting improvement works alongside the heated pool, including a new café building and improved community spaces.
Work has already started on drilling a geothermal well which will provide enough renewable energy to heat a section of the water to 35°c. The drilling has been made possible thanks to a grant from the European Union, but a condition of that funding was that we need to fund the costs of connecting the well up to the pool, and build the section that will contain the heated water. We will also be building a new café facility and community space along the top terrace.
We have raised most of the money required to deliver the geothermal project from loans and grant funding, but we need your help to raise £500k. If we reach our target we can do even more to ensure this exciting facility is the very best possible experience for one and all, with improved café, community and pool facilities and a visitor experience to match the spectacular Jubilee Pool. It will also mean that we might be able to borrow less and save money on interest payments meaning we can plough more back into the future of the pool. Please dive in and help us get there!
