FoOL Newsletter - October 2021

Our crowdfunding campaign ended at 9am today with a final total of £60,711 and 876 unqiue supporters. We hit our £53,000 target five days before the end of the campaign and honed in on our ‘stretch’ target of £65,000. The extra funds raised shall provide a larger contingency fund (if required) or go towards future phases of the project with the aim of bringing the lido to fruition sooner.

In other news, we secured two grants this month - both from long-standing supporters. We are so grateful to Otley BID for its commitment of £5,000 and, similarly, to Otley Chamber of Trade for £1,000. Additionally, both shall continue to provide on-going help, advice and support. Read the full October newsletter here.
